Here's how to get your current Firefox Browser updated to this new SSL Gear by simply Downloading the VeriSign EV Green Bar Extension as a Add-on : Add the VeriSign EV Green Bar Extension to Firefox

Mozilla Firefox 3.6.24 on Mandriva 2011 x86_64



                          Mozilla-FireFox

                          Version 3.6.24
 		        Release 0.1-mdv2011.0
                           March 2012
		compiled for Mandriva 2011 x86_64
               by Robert M. Stockmann (stock@stokkie.net)

The open source browser Mozilla Firefox Version 3.6.24 is migrated
to Mandriva 2011 x86_64. For that to work several development libraries
need to be installed (see the downloads).
But that is not the issue here. Installing firefox-3.6.24-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64
is rather straight forward :

	1. rpm -e firefox    (as the current installed version is most
                              of the time version 8.0 )
	2. install xulrunner :
	   rpm -Uhv xulrunner-1.9.2.24-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm \
		lib64xulrunner1.9.2.24-1.9.2.24-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm

	3. install the browser :
           rpm -Uhv firefox-3.6.24-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm
		(if it complains about lib64xulrunner1.9.2
                 being missing, just add --nodeps)
           rpm -Uhv firefox-3.6.24-0.1-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm --nodeps

Here's an example logging :

The result is surprising and stunning as the obtained speed increase
compared to firefox-8 is amazing.
