How Can I Install Songbird Without Installing Firefox?


I downloaded songbird in .deb. When I tried to install the package, I read on the installer that in order to install songbird, it is required that I also install firefox. I don't want to install firefox at all. Is there any way to install songbird without firefox?

Firefox 3 contains the XUL-runner engine also used
by Songbird. So well done by Debian. You will save
some space. The standalone version of Songbird is
huge, 108 MB.
