    Firefox 3b5 to Firefox2

    I have tried it multiple times. Here is what i do.

    Open Synaptic, Complete Remove Fx3b5
    Install Fx2 from Add Remove
    But now i cannot install any plugin/theme in fx2.

    And i cannot use fx3b5 as no plugin works in it...

    Can anyone help on this?

    Also can anyone name a second best browser after fx?

    Delete your ~/.mozilla directory. FF3 puts some settings in there that FF2 dislikes. I was in the exact same boat as you and this fixed everything.
