What is possible, and I had a system running perfectly fine doing it, is to add the MEPIS 8.5 and 8.5 Community Repos to an 8.0 system and upgrade Firefox from there. It will upgrade the necessary libraries as necessary, such as a newer GTK 2.0 and glib, while leaving KDE 3.5 alone. Just don't go hog-wild and upgrade everything possible.
You can upgrade most anything that is not KDE 4 related, however.
Hmmm...that may make a good wiki entry. I know many are sticking with KDE 3.5. I did this on an older machine with limited memory with great success.
I did this, but I could not find any FF 9, nor TB 9. in the synaptic.
