    Default Update to Firefox 3.6 nice and clean in back|track 4 - final

    firefox 3.6 update in BT4

    current version 3.0.15

    Go to Browse Ubuntuzilla: Mozilla Software Installer Files on SourceForge.net and download firefox-mozilla-build_3.6-0ubuntu1_i386.deb to our default download location which is our desktop or /root/

    update: the firefox-mozilla-build_3.6-0ubuntu1_i386.deb package is under:
    All Files -> mozilla -> apt -> pool -> main -> f -> firefox-mozilla-build

    Once we have the file lets save the default BT4 home page, personally I like it there are a lot of resources on this page that I use.

    open a text editor of your choice and then within the original version of firefox go to: edit -> prefrences

    then we should see our default home page, if not it is under the Main category the default homepage for BT4 is file:///opt/browser_ads/Commercial.html (when I updated it kept all of my current settings including my home page, this was just a precaution I took)

    now let us move on to the installation of our new firefox 3.6 browser.

    1. Open a terminal - if you do not know how - please read the "If you are new to BT or Linux forum post within the beginners forum.

    2. issue the following command (make sure you are in whatever directory you d/led the .deb package to)

    Code:
    dpkg -i firefox-mozilla-build_3.6-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
    once launched a add-on window will pop up, DO NOT CLOSE THIS WINDOW.
    in this window we need to enable all plug-ins, than update our plug-ins. (see below)

    update: by defualt in BT4 the only extensions that are enabled are:

    NoScript
    Tamper Data
    There should be no need to enable all, I just did this to ensure all is working correctly

    The only two extensions of firefox 3.6 that are not compatible with are:

    HackBar 1.4.2
    Tamper Data 10.1.0

    if we select find updates within the add-on window than firefox will update our extensions for us and we can bask in the glory of having newer versions of all original extensions that comes with BT4.

    Once updated restart firefox open up the add-on window again by going to tools -> add-ons and enable HackBar 1.4.2 then restart firefox again and enjoy.

    All Files? Where do you see that? Is that on a menu?

    If it's on my computer then I already have it, and my browser start page is fine.

    Edit what preferences?

    If you could tell me where this "all files" place is I could probably get started. I thought you edited firefox settings by putting "about:xxxxx" (where xxxxx is . . .hmmm . . .settings?) in the address bar.

    all you need to do is download the latest debian file from Browse Ubuntuzilla: Mozilla Software Installer Files on SourceForge.net and use the following code in terminal, ensuring you issue the command within the same DIR which you downloaded the file:

    dpkg -i firefox-mozilla-build_3.6.x-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

    hope this helps

    This didn't worked for me, this only upgrades libnspr4-0d and libnss3-1d packages.
