other than mozilla or clen uninstall & battle dependencies


freebsd. Mozilla became unstable and i foolishly rm -rf it from whereis. Subsequently i have learned that mozilla has a few (trillion) dependencies. I have been unable to install mozilla from ports or downloaded freebsd or linux downloades versions. I usually only use mozilla for my sbc yahoo needs because its always been slow for me. Opera does not support the plug-ins needed to use this site.
is there a clean way to uninstall my mozilla and resolve the dependency problems for a fresh install? OR is there another browser that will support the flash features (or whatever they are) needed by my yahoo login?
I'm king of compulisive with the rm command and this is not the first time its bit me in ass.
thanks

cd /usr/ports/www/mozilla && make deinstall distclean
cd ../../lang/perl5.8 && make all install
use.perl port
cd ../../www/mozilla-firebird && make all install
rehash; firebird

As far as flash goes, screw proprietary formats.
If they don't want to make it worldwide and public screw em I say not on my internet and not in my browser

PS html is a portable document format.

thanks for that info. It took me cleanly through a large part of the mozilla install but i was stopped with gmake and something about x fonts.
any ideas?
also there was no mozilla-firebird directory in ports/www
thanks again

xftdpy.c:484: for each function it appears in.)
gmake[1]: *** [xftdpy.lo] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/ports/x11-fonts/Xft/work/xft-2.1.2'
gmake: *** [all] Error 2
*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/x11-fonts/Xft.
*** Error code 1

No actually im not familiar with cvs builds. I was under the impression that they were works-in-progress and not yet considered stable builds. I guess im wrong. Why? Are you implying that my current problem may be the result of dependencies that should be updated to match the current version of mozilla's dependencies? Ive been installing the x fonts from the ports. They have been installing for over an hour now. That seems excessive.
thanks
