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.
