Firefox is the best stable browser for Fedora. It comes with Fedora and simply awesome. Updating to Fedora 20 is quite easier with terminal.

Run

# sudo yum install firefox

and it will cost about 55MB of data. When everything is complete, restart Firefox, thats all..

Install Firefox 29 using Remi and EPEL repositories.

Remi is nothing but it collects most uptodate packages. To install Remi and EPEL run

## Install RPMFusion Repository in Fedora 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14 ##
# wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm 
# wget http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
# rpm -Uvh rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm 
# rpm -Uvh rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

## Install Remi Repository in Fedora 20 ##
# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-20.rpm
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-20.rpm

## Install Remi Repository in Fedora 19 ##
# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-19.rpm
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-19.rpm

## Install Remi Repository in Fedora 18 ##
# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-18.rpm
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-18.rpm

## Install Remi Repository in Fedora 17 ##
# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-17.rpm
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-17.rpm

## Install Remi Repository in Fedora 16 ##
# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-16.rpm
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-16.rpm

## Install Remi Repository in Fedora 15 ##
# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-15.rpm
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-15.rpm

## Install Remi Repository in Fedora 14 ##
# wet http://rpms.famillecollet.com/remi-release-14.rpm
# rpm -Uvh remi-release-14.rpm

and check the availablity of Firefox 29 (this is available, and no necessary to run this actually) with

# yum list firefox

Then finally install with

# yum install firefox

One thought on “Update to Firefox 29 in Fedora.

  1. There is a problem with the “Install Remi Repository in Fedora 14” commands — even
    after misspelled command ‘wet’ is changed to ‘wget’, the HTTP request-response failed.
