Cool What's the best version of Mozilla for RH9?


Just finished an install of RH9, and I'm interested in finding the best version of Mozilla that is stable. I also notice that although version 1.4 is the most recent, the organization also pushes the Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 browser. Is this supposed to be an eventual replacement, or will the two products run in parallel?

TIA

From my understanding Firebird is to replace mozilla. And Firebird is well worth a try. Been using it for a while and I'm pleased.

AFAIK, Firebird is not going to take place of Mozilla.. its more of like a standalone browser without all the other stuff like mail, chatzilla and such....

OK, Thanks All

I guess I was worried about losing the current Moz 1.2.1, by putting something else in the box, but it probably doesn't matter since all versions can probably co-exist in Linux anyway.

When I installed redhat 9, mozilla 1.2.1 was installed in /usr/lib/mozilla1.2

When I installed mozilla 1.4 using the installer that was included it installed it in /usr/local/mozilla. So yes they can live side by side.
