    Canonical will not adopt the ESR version. See the Firefox maintainer blog. However, they could eventually provide a PPA for it.
    Thanks very much for the pointer, the installation went well. It even found & loaded all my plug-ins, & runs them, without any glitches, (except for the Ubuntu compatibility extension, which it disabled).

    Now, of course, more questions...

    I have a small drive on this machine.
    To save space, is uninstalling/deleting the /usr/lib/Mozilla & /Mozilla/Firefox folders advisable?

    I use Bleachbit. How does it 'know' which Firefox install to clean? Do I need to do anything to point Bleachbit at the /opt/Firefox location?

    *EDIT* I now have the Ubuntu Modifications Extension installed...

    Re: Firefox +1 Mega Thread

    I am having problems with slow loading of pages since Firefox upgraded to ver 12. I am not sure hardware acceration is enabled and I wonder if that would be the reason pages either will not load or take a long time (a minute or two). I did try running Firefox in Safe mode but it made not difference

    It is not recommended to delete system files like that.

    Firefox stores data on profile folders in your home. BleachBit will clean that, independent of which Firefox version you use.

    Install the add-on "Default full zoom level".
    Then you can set your zoom level to whatever you want, and it sticks.

    Overriding all page formatting

    To override all page styling (chrome) to use your default colors, fonts, and Firefox's default style page go to "View" menu > Page Style > No Style.

    A toggle button can be created by the "Read Easily extension with a large red "A", or a "Toggle Styles" button can be created with Custom Toolbar Buttons Maker.

    Readability features can be toggled with either a bookmarklet or an extension to make reading on the Web more enjoyable by removing the clutter around what you are reading, enlarging text, and eliminating most images and videos to show only the essential text of a web page.

    Do you have more than one profile for Firefox?
