    Error Installing Firefox 3.5 In Intrepid

    While running the script, I receive the following error:

    Deleting the file "urlclassifier3.sqlite," and then opening and closing Firefox seems to have fixed it.

    Hi
    for the future: you probably could have just changed the ownership on all the files in the profile to your user. the permission denied errors are usually caused by having run firefox with sudo previously, which messes up the profile file ownership.

    hi
    to change ownership of files in your profile to your user, run the following command:
    Code:
    sudo chown -R yourusername:yourusername ~/.mozilla
    (where of course you replace "yourusername" with your actual username on your machine)
