    The package insists it's x.14. It lies and installes x.13. I have verified this by checking "Help" -> "About Firefox".

    Well, in the absence of any other pointers or suggestions as to what my be wrong with my particular configuration, I am going to assume that the .deb itself is borked and wait until the newest release comes around and hope that that one actually upgrades me to a current version.

    File this under yet another reason why your truly will never run a 64bit system again, at least until all these wacko incompatibilities are resolved.

    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    Hi there, I've installed firefox32 via the script, but since this, I seem to be unable to install or use add-on's, they don't appear in the menus and I am unable to install them, I get "unspecified error" when ever I try to install a add-on. Can you help?

    Thanks.
    Kind Regards

    [QUOTE=Kilz;5145188]Have a wonderful day.

    I'd really prefer to stay with Firefox since, you know, it's what I'm used to and can't see any reason why I should switch.

    I don't mean to sound like a jerk or what have you, but have you actually installed the .deb that I referenced in my earlier message? I swear, I was running version x.12, downloaded that .deb file, which claimed it was for x.14, ran it and wound up with version x.13. I'm not making this up.

    I have done an exhaustive search of my entire machine and have found exactly two versions of Firefox: the 64bit 2.0.0.14 and the 32bit 2.0.0.13 (which is what I actually want to run). When I download the .deb again and try to run it, it merrily fails, telling me that version x.14 is already installed.

    I mean, I could just be out of my frickin' mind, but something seems whacked here. I'd really like to know the following:

    1. Is it just me and I happen to have incurred the wrath of some ancient god that refuses to allow me access to 2.0.0.14?

    2. Is there another location I can get a .deb that will install the 32bit version of 2.0.0.14?

    3. Is there some magical set of steps I can perform that will allow me to upgrade my version from 2.0.0.13 (which I have verified through Help/About) to 2.0.0.14?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your script, it worked nicely for me.

    For different reasons I wanted to uninstall it after checking it out (mostly because I decided to make the system a server later on and then firefox32 is just too much stuff)

    It was quite tricky to do this because and I only managed it because I had dumped a list of installed packages and files earlier and could diff it against later. And still I am not sure if I got em all.

    Basically I uninstalled the new packages and then removed /usr/lib32 (nothing besides firefox in it anyway) and /usr/local/firefox32. Anything else to keep an eye on? Some modified files in /etc or something?

    Firefox 3 has not gone final, it is still in Release candidate testing.
