yeah its really gr8 , it gets better with every release

I am not using this version yet, but they indicate in the release notes that one change is that "You can now open blocked popups". Is this a typo or what, because this comment strikes me as being a little odd. How would this work, unless it meant that every blocked pop-up would generate a message asking "Do you want to open this blocked window?" which to me would be an extreme annoyance. Is anyone using this, and if so how does this function behave? I guess I'll give it a try myself tomorrow but in the meantime I'm pretty curious. -- J.W.

I haven't installed it yet, but I think it means if you click on the little "blocked popup" icon in the lower left corner, it will give you a list of blocked popups, which you can then open.

a little window will appear under the tabs telling u that it blocked a popup and see the option , in the options u could allow popups from this site or to never show the notification again

Yup, is like this, but for me it does not work. I've tryed it on www.gmail.com and it's blocking all the time the new windows gmail opens (such as contacts list). Even if I try to "open the blocked popup", it will not open. If I turn off the blocking system, neither it works.
I've already submited the bug in firefox forum, and as far as I know, I'm not the only one having this issue. For the rest, FF works perfectly.

The strang thing is that it works with me in gmail contact list .

but i am using windows as i am at work now , so may be the problem is with the linux version

Install for whole system
 
The firefox install seems like it works great as the user you install firefox as... However, after installing firefox as root into /usr/local/firefox, I can't run it using a 'user' account. (Fedora Core 2, Fully updated as of this-morning).

Does anybody know how to fix this without making the entire firefox folder world writable?

[edit] One more thing...

[gavollink@gvlt gvollink]$ /usr/local/firefox/firefox
*** loading the extensions datasource
*** loading the extensions datasource
*** loading the extensions datasource
*** loading the extensions datasource

This will continue until I Ctrl-C

Have you changed permissions of /usr/local/firefox to be able to be read as regular user as well??

Do a "chmod -R a+rw /usr/local/firefox" as root

GAVollink 09-17-2004 05:12 PM

I got it working, but not gracefull...
 
Everyone (others) had read access to the entire "/usr/local/firefox" folder structure, but for some reason, I had to give global write access to the "/usr/local/firefox/extensions" folder and contents (one file).

This seems wrong - perhaps there is something I needed to put somewhere else instead. But it works without complaint, so unless somebody has a better idea (shrugs).

Help with fiefox 1
 
I downloaded it to /home. Do I install it with "Ark" in "local"? And what are the launch commands? How can I get the firefox icon on the dektop? Thanks.
