    I did a little cleanup on the Wiki entry. It was extremely old and assumed people were using Breezy or Dapper and firefox 1.* instead of 2.*. It also had a lot of convoluted instructions and things not related to installing the Mozilla build of Firefox.

    Firefox 2 isn't supported any more.

    I know that it doesn't get updates and whatnot, but are you saying that Firefox 2 is impossible to install? I just can't stand Firefox 3..

    I was searching this forum and want to inform staff that this link just takes you to an advertisement and should be removed.Thanks.

    I also could ask what I was searching for in the first place. I want to know if I can have two separate Firefox programs running on my computer? I wanted to have on with a lot of plugins and one with bear minimum of plugins for speed. I also want to say that the install with no integration in the first post didn't do that for me, it just launched my current firefox, that is the same as typing "firefox" in a terminal.Thanks!!

    Re: One more installation method for Firefox

    Thanks for pointing that out to me. Unfortunately I shut down that blog quite a while ago and it seems some cybersquatter has placed some adverts at my old URI. I checked the Internet Archive and they didn't snag any of my content from that site so I'm afraid my post has gone to the great bit bucket in the sky.

    As far as running two versions of Firefox at one time, I'm afraid that's impossible due to the fact that both versions would run an app called "firefox". The bottom line is that when you launch a second version the OS simply looks at what's running, sees an app called "firefox" is already running, and simply opens a new window for the app already started. The only way around that may be to use a virtual machine to run a different version of Firefox in.
    For an OSX look check out Mac4Lin (updated support thread)

    That is exactly what it was doing and thanks for letting me know it isn't possible. I know that opening firefox is just the same as typing firefox in a terminal and that opens the current version. I did go on my brothers guest account (which I never use) and there were few plugins there so I guess I could use a different user account to if I want a lighter firefox or a different version. If someone finds a better way of doing this please let me know. I just want a fast light firefox and a seperate one that has alot of plugins and functions. Right now I am using a lot of plugins, so I need to get another install with no plugins that I can configure separate. Thanks

    You can install firefox in wine and it runs perfectly.
    So you have 2 different firefoxes.

    I first wanted to recommend installing Opera or Konqueror as a second browser but I have discovered recently that google adwords doesn't work in any of them.

    So for linux currently there is no alternative but firefox. Unfortunately.
