It's easy:
you could add MIB repositories for rosa2012lts temporarely, you could follow this guide
viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3343

you need executing the first part only, where is wrote:
"To add only MIB repositories, leaving other repositories configuration inalterated"

you could only install the /basic repository, so only the first "urpmi.addmedia" row

if you want to avoid a global update, you can use mcc or some commands to update and / or install your preferred programs

Code: Select all

urpmi firefox
urpmi thunderbird
then when you have finished you could also disable these repositories, or leaving them enabled to remain in backport mode



You could also execute some commands like the following, where you configure repo, install the required apps, then remove repo
if you have arch 32bit

Code: Select all

urpmi.addmedia --update MIB-basic_32 http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa2012lts/32/basic/
urpmi firefox
urpmi thunderbird
urpmi.removemedia MIB-basic_32
#
if you have arch 64bit

Code: Select all

urpmi.addmedia --update MIB-basic_64 http://mib.pianetalinux.org/MIB/rosa2012lts/64/basic/
urpmi firefox
urpmi thunderbird
urpmi.removemedia MIB-basic_64
#

NOTE:
Many users reported problems with firefox 13 in MDV 2010.2, these problems seem not affecting rosa2012lts
The problems happen with some extensions, perhaps could be flash plugin related, we are investigating...
In any cases, if you may suffer some problems with ff 13.x, you can ever easily come back to the old ff 10.x
