Has anyone installed Firefox 3.6 on Helena KDE?

Postby schrodinger's cat on Mon Mar 01, 2010 6:27 pm

Either by using Ubuntuzilla or any other way? I've read of some people who have installed Firefox 3.6 on Karmic and then had to roll back to 3.5.8 due to some problems, and I was wondering if anyone here has had any such issues.

Since no one has answered this I guess I will. I tried Firefox 3.6 using Ubuntuzilla but reverted to 3.5.8 because full screen flash would not work right for me. I think java has to be set up different in 3.6 too but I did not really mess with it very much.

I'm using FF 3.6 on Helena KDE 64, doesn't have fast internet connection so seldom streaming a video and can't comment on the flash video but the java plugin do give me some "hair-pulling" though. I can't find it from Tools->add-ons, had create a sym link to FF plugins folder and so on. But, until now, no problems in loading and visiting any sites,not even when visiting a site containing a java applets and everything is just working for the moment so i just let it be. Might reverting to 3.5.8 if somehow any problems arise.

Thanks, exploder and feed3. Apparently, out of the 93 (so far) people who have viewed this topic, you two are the only ones who have tried this.

Personas don't interest me, and other than that there's not a lot in FF3.6 that I can't do with FF3.5.8, so I think I will hold off for now.

I've also installed Firefox 3.6 on Helena KDE using ubuntuzilla and I have no problems with flash or other streaming video format. Perhaps you do not have all plugins needed for that, here is my list (many of them are gecko plugins):
- mplayerplug-in 3.55
- DivX Browser Plug-In
- QuickTime Plug-in 7.4.5
- RealPlayer 9
- Windows Media Player Plug-in
- mplayerplug-in is now gecko-mediaplayer 0.9.8
- Shockwave Flash

If this does not help, you could tell me what web page/s you're unable to play streaming video, to see what happens with my browser configuration.

Regards.

Installed 3.6 via the mozillateam/firefox-stable ppa. No particular issues.
