    Re: HowTo Install the Latest Firefox in Ubuntu (Ultimate HowTo)

    I tried to get some interest from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1224279 without luck yet.

    The last post (mine) pretty much outlines what I've done so far to restore the linky goodness.

    And failed dismally.

    Specifically post #3? I know it's an old thread but it's worth a try. I had the same trouble a long time ago but over time, my computing habits have changed (I use Gmail exculsively vs. ThunderBird) and this is no longer an issue for me.

    Let us know what fixed it for you!

    Aww, I dunno - it just came back or should that be ??

    I have been in XP playing IL2 1946, maybe it got jealous or something.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it's functional, I'm just curious as to which step fixed it.

    FWIW, the config file entries are as follows: -
    Code:
    user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.ftp", "/usr/bin/firefox-3.5");
    user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "/usr/bin/firefox-3.5");
    user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https", "/usr/bin/firefox-3.5");
    It will be interesting to see if they are borked by the next ff update.

    Don't you just love it when things fix themselves?

    Yup, it will be curious to see what the next version of FF does. Or perhaps it's a TBird udpate? Who knows. Too many moving parts.

    What is the difference between the Ubuntu built Firefox and the Mozilla one?

    Thank you very much!

    Being a 64-bit user, can I still install Firefox's 32-bit builds and still maintain a semblance of stability?

    You know, I moved this to "Outdated tutorials" for a reason.
