Slackel ships midori instead. But you could try mozilla-firefox-45.5.0esr from the Salix repo.

Caveat emptor: be careful: Slackel is based on Slackware-current, Salix on Slackware-stable, so mixing packages from these repos could fail. But in this specific case that should work, I think.

My bad, Firefox is in the Slackel repos as mozilla-firefox, I installed it with no problems. Thanks Didier.
It's running good, i like the fact that uses alsa, much better than the other one. Icewm is running good.
