January 17th, 2009, 07:30 PM

I'm currently working with Firefox 3.0, and radio button, button select are incorectly displayed (partially draw, surronded with an ugly grey background).

I've tryed to apply the fix in System Settings->Appearance->GTK Styles & Fonts-> Scrollbars fix, without success.

Also, I'm working a web application that work only under Firefox. I need to test it against Firefox 3.1. How Can I install a new version of Firefox 3.1 without touching the 3.0 already installed ?

You can basically download the new version. Then, unpack it in your $HOME and run it from there.

Download Firefiox release versions from here: http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ and after decompression, run:

/path/to/firefox --ProfileManager

Reference the new profile a name different than your existing ~/.mozilla/firefox/profile.name and your current profile will not be touched.
