Firefox-4.0-4.0b13pre vs RC1

Post by automatic25 » Tue Mar 15, 2011 6:11 am

Hi,

I'm using LMDE 10 64-bit, and trying to install Firefox 4 RC1 from Mozilla.com


1) beta
Before that, I install Firefox 4 Beta after adding these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian experimental main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla ... ppa/ubuntu maverick main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla ... ppa/ubuntu maverick main

latest version updated is: firefox-4.0-4.0b13pre


2) rc1
After RC1 released, I download firefox from mozilla.com and extract it on /opt/ directory, but when I run /opt/firefox/firefox plugins are not available and no way I can add or install any plugins or extension online or offline (copy library to plugins directory).


3) My questions:
- is there a better way to install Firefox 4 RC, or should I wait until final version is available?
- how to fix plugins problem in Firefox 4 RC1 (from mozilla.com), if it can be fixed.

note: firefox-4.0-4.0b13pre still run well


Thanks and regards.

Thank you for your respond.

I extract firefox on my home directory, run it, still the same. No plugins found or installed, extension is active.

Regards
