Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i downloaded firefox and i found it to be worse than firebird 0.7 and went back.
for one, CTRL+K simply doesn't work. i tried it a million times in a million different ways and it simply will not take me to the google search bar.
another thing is that it keeps trying to modprobe sound-slot-1 or something like that and that's causes errors in kernel logs.
lastly i dislike the new download manager and it's pretty interface.
the gtk2 version is slow. it slows down other programs open on the same virtual desktop.
all in all, i didn't see any improvements and was annoyed with the new features.
dont take this the wrong way. i love mozilla and i think they make some great software, it's just that usually their new releases (including all previous updates of firebird) offer improvements and dont introduce that many new bugs.
Here's a little perl-launching script I banged out that makes it easy to have shortcuts point to Firefox without running into multiple instance conflicts. Just thought you guys would like this.
#Simple Firefox launch script.
#I was getting annoyed at dealing with multiple instances
#Simply run this from the command line (or a button)
#and send as an argument a URL.
#If there's no instance of MozFX, then it creates one,
#otherwise, it calls -remote on the running instance,
#and opens the link in a new-tab.
