i tried to update firefox through firefox, couldn't do it
did it as root
firefox stopped responding to middleclick new tabs, and rightclick->open in new tabs
i think some other things are busted too
i tried reinstalling, removing then installing, removing my .mozilla directory and various combinations -- nothing working (there's another thread simiar but they were having permission errors, my settings seem to save -- even if they don't work)
also, funny thing, i have the gtk theme set to xfce-winter using gtk-chtheme (running enlightenment) and well neither firefox nor gaim changed but on the first time i reinstalled firefox the gtk theme was winter on firefox
so... i've got a broken firefox and im stuck with an ugly theme
anyone have any ideas
thanks in advance
Did you have he tabbrowser preferences extension installed? It went away when you deleted the .mozilla directory or when you uninstalled. Personally, I download the 1.0 release installer and then just install as a user, that way there is never a problem with extensions that want you to be root to install.
in the interim, just download firefox as a user from the mozilla.org site, and install it (as a user) into a directory in your /home/user
run it from there.
a few other people are having trouble with firefox lately too..so something may be amiss.
