Install firefox on Debian?
Can firefox be installed on Debian Lenny 64? Will this cause problems with dependencies? How can I install it? I want to get some of the extension I like using in my browser. Iceweasel version is too old for some of the Add-Ons.
There is nothing to install. This is how I use Firefox:
extract to my /home
ln -s /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins /home/craig/Downloads/firefox/plugins
opened iceweasel with iceweasel -profilemanager and created a profile for Firefox
copied my iceweasel profile to the new firefox profile
created a Firefox.desktop so I can launch it by clicking on the desktop icon.
Although the last time I checked Mozilla did not have a 64bit version of Firefox. You might try using Swiftfox instead.
I ended up doing this:
Fisrt adding backports to the /etc/apt/sources.list
There is no firefox for a 64-bit system - you need to compile it from the sources.
The Firefox nightlies have a 64bit version, or you can download it from the Mepis repos.
Of course Iceweasel has a amd64 version as well.
