Hi I think I may have found a bug. LMDE wouldn't install for me with WiFi on. It kept stalling on localizing FireFox and Thunderbird. I live in the UK. It happend two me twice while trying to install with WiFi on. When I tried to install with no networking it worked and installed.

I can confirm this Bug.
It also stalled for me at "localizing firefox and thunderbird",
as i disabled wireless it instantly moved on with the installation.

Same Problem here with the LMDE XFCE DVD (64 Bit) -iso image.

Continues after disabling all Network-Connections (was LAN for me).

it's not a bug: at that stage of live-installer (when it says that is localizing FF and TB) it is performing a query to the repos (updating) and installing the relevant language packs (for both FF and TB according to previous user selection)
- this part takes usually a very long time because several things come to play: the speed of the internet connection of course but mainly the speed of the mirror you are connecting to and how overloaded it is.
