No Firefox 3 for SuSE Linux 9

I like the fact that you can simply download Firefox, unarchive it on your Linux computer, and run it. You don't need system administration privilege to install it. So this whole time, I've been running Firefox 2.0.0.20 on my SuSE Linux 9 desktop. But it is some what buggy. After it runs for a week, the whole operating system slows down to a crawl. Killing the Firefox process solves the problem.

So I thought I'd give Firefox 3.5.3 a try. Unarchiving the bz2 tar file was easy enough. And running it directly without installation worked just as well. But I got an error message:

./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libpangocairo-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Doing a search revealed that Pango for SuSE Linux 9 is too old. And it's not really feasible to upgraded Pango by yourself without installing a newer version of the operating system. That kinda puts a damper on things if you don't have administration privileges.

Oh well. I guess it's back to Firefox 2.0.0.20 for me.
