Default Is there a way to update Firefox to the latest version ?

I am using OpenBSD 7. Right after install I ran syspatch & rebooted my system. Then I installed XFCE followed by Firefox. I had already backed up my Firefox profile which I was using under Linux. I just copied the .mozilla folder to my OpenBSD's home & then when I launched Firefox I saw a message which says that my Firefox is old & it will corrupt my profile. I tried running pkg_add -u but I didn't receive a single update.

Is there a way to update Firefox to the latest version ?
OpenBSD 7
Firefox (installed) :94.0.2 (64-bit)

We had this conversation back in 2018.


Some things have changed since then, but this is still true: if you want the latest and greatest, shiniest version of Firefox, you will have to run -current.
