I'm trying to find out if Firefox 3 can be installed on Mint 3.1. Here is what I tried:
I tried downloading and installing it using Mintinstall (download for Elyssa). The installation seemed to go absolutely fine. However, when I launch Firefox, it brings up FF 22.214.171.124 instead of FF 3.
When I try to search for files modified today, I do find a folder called firefox in /usr/lib, but opening the firefox link through that also brings up the older version. I would really like to have FF 3, and that is the reason I didn't upgrade FF from FF 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
Another thing I noticed is that the font rendering has changed in the older version of FF after the installation of FF3.
I really used to like the fonts earlier, as they were better than any other Linux distro. Anyway, I can restore the fonts the way there were before? I'm even prepared to uninstall FF3 if it will help.
Can anybody give more information on this?
