I got a problem when i want to installe firefox 1.0.7 with mandriva 2005.

[nemau@nemau ~]$ /home/nemau/Desktop/firefox-installer/firefox-installer
./firefox-installer-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Try that again as root. If it doesn't work, make sure you have the library on your system. Hope this helps..

There should be an RPM pachage for Mandrake of Firefox

Look at sites like http://rpm.pbone.net/

Mandriva 2005 includes Firefox by default and they've backported all the security and bug fixes into the '1.0.2' RPM. Once you've run MandrakeUpdate you'll have all the latest fixes that were in 1.0.7, so don't be fooled by the fact that they haven't changed the version number.

They do it this 'backporting' way because that's what they do for all the other packages in the distro, ie. its just to keep their procedures consistent. It hopefully also avoids breaking extensions which may need to be updated to work with 1.0.7.

Extensions

Firefox will not allow the download and installation of extension unless you are using 1.0.4 or above...

This seems like a bad way to keep things the same by changing software version numbers.
Any advice on installing extensions?

Most Extensions work fine, I've installed several on my Firefox and I didn't even need to be root.

That's the whole point - it doesn't change the software version numbers. This keeps things stable, eg. in Firefox's case running MandrakeUpdate to get the latest Firefox doesn't break extensions you've installed already because your staying on the same version of firefox.

What extension are you trying to install that you get error messages about?

where to get them.

When I go to the mozilla web site to get extensions http://addons.mozilla.org/ it promptly redirects me to http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/upgrade/ which tells me that I need at least version 1.0.4 to acess the mozilla update web service.

So it's not that I;ve had trouble installing them, per se. I just can't get the listings.

It didn't redirect for me - it stayed at http://addons.mozilla.org

Run MandrakeUpdate maybe and get the latest updates.
