Recently in my kubuntu 10.10 a firefox update showed which is about 15.2mb, but I already have 8.0.

And it works fine with forecastfox 2.21 of which is has problems I see thru forecastfox users groups doesn't work with firefox 9.01, so how do I not do this update thru kpackagekit, and delete from the kpackagekit?

The Ubuntu community documentation has: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PinningHowto

This wiki page will discuss some advanced things you can do to packages to accomplish specific goals. The first thing described is Pinning, this is useful if you want only some things from a newer version of Ubuntu. There is also package holding, which allows you to not update the package.
