My question basically pertains to running firefox from the repo vs running it from /opt. What I usually do is download firefox from mozilla ftp, extract, move to /opt, set symlink to plugins, and then edit /usr/shar/applications/firefox.destop, then save with new name.
after allowing update manager to find all updates and update all i am no longer able to VPN into my desktop at work for remote working via firefox.i have tried a few things from firefox perspective and getting no where.
I really don't know what happened to my Firefox browser. I was using it till yesterday but now it is not working(doesn't open up at all). I restarted my computer, re installed Firefox using yum and it went okay, but that also is making no difference.
I had a problem ever since I moved to Firefox 3.6 where if I installed the java plugin Firefox would just hang. I didn't matter if I installed the sun or the iced tea one, or whether I installed via yast or manually using the files from Sun.
Been searching for ages and have found plenty of forums with people who have this problem but no solution.
A couple of days back, we reported that Firefox 5.0 was available ahead of its scheduled release date in Mozilla’s FTP server. Well, today it has landed in the firefox-next PPA that Mozilla maintains for early adopters.
