How to get Firefox 3/ All essential plugins to work like Windows/ Debian Lenny 64 Bit/ Will work on 32 bit also
Login as root
Update the system and change to directory “opt” and download Firefox 3
Uncompress Firefox 3
tar -xvjf firefox-3.0.5.tar.bz2
Create a symbolic link to it, like a shortcut in Windows. This will place it in the OS path so you can launch Firefox from any where without having to reference the actual application.
ln -s firefox3 /opt/firefox/firefox
Install Flash Plugin
aptitude install flashplayer-mozilla
ln -s libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
Lets test the Flash plugin. We need to start Firefox 3.
Then go to the the following url “about:plugins” and you should see.
