i told you already. see above.
yes FF3 works great for me. i was able to install it on several Linux systems. (2x Sabayon, 1x Debian, 1x CentOS4 + 2 OSx systems) all with no problems.
for the Linux systems i did exactly as mentioned above... oh and BTW those are the directions on the Mozilla site.
dubey, you just need to point to the CORRECT firefox with the FULL path.
do not just type firefox as that is keyed to your older install of the application.
./full/path/to/firefox3 and that should do the trick. see above.
