    Re: Error during installing firefox

    The python script is really deprecated now, I suggest you use some other way to get firefox. I see that you're using 64bit, i suggest you try one of the other solutions suggested on

    If you really want to use the script - mozilla recently changed their website layout a bit, so the script needs a one-line tweak to make it work again. But you really would be better off using one of the alternatives.

    Also if you're running Lucid or later, the official repos should have the latest.

    Hmm. Ok.

    I tried to install this to get FoxyTunes to work. It says that my version of Firefox doesn't support it ant that I should install the latest version in order to get it working.

    I've tried a few different solutions, but none of them worked...
