    Re: HOWTO: Install Firefox 1.5 from mozilla.org

    I tried Fasterfox and ditched it. While I didn't do any real tests, I didn't notice any real speed difference, but I did notice it was hogging bandwidth and cpu cycles as it prefetched everything in sight. If everybody used Fasterfox (or Google's prefetching system), I think we'd probably have the opposite effect and actually slow things down by bogging down the circuits with wasted packets full of stuff we never even looked at.

    For safely updating your Firefox 1.5 (en-US) to 1.5.0.1, look here:

    NOTE: Make sure you close Firefox before launching the updater.

    Fireupdate will check, whether Firefox is launched and display a pop-up, if needed.

    # For Developers: As you can see, I prefer KDE to GNOME.
    # If you know a way to make Fireupdate recognize
    # the desktop-manager used, please let me know.
    Look at DESKTOP_SESSION environment variable
    bjorninge@ubuntuBreezy:~$ env | grep DESKTOP_SESSION
    DESKTOP_SESSION=gnome
    GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID=Default

    recently updated the wiki page, so that there is only one way to update, which does not use sudo, thus not causing the file ownership issues in profile in /home when sudo is used to update.
