    Default Install firefox 3.6.9 on BT4

    I've done installed firefox(latest ver 3.6.9) on my BT4. After i update firefox, i also update libflashplayer.so(plugins).

    This is what i did:

    1- Simply go to Firefox homepage(here) to download the package from origin provider.

    - The package is with extension “.tar.bz2″

    2- Make sure the package is located on your home folder

    3- Open Terminal/Konsole and run “su”command then type your password if asking to use wide installation

    4- Move firefox package to /usr/local/bin using this command:

    #mv firefox-3.6.9.tar.bz2 /usr/local/bin

    5- Navigate to it location and extract the package into that location

    # cd /usr/local/bin

    # tar jxvf firefox-3.6.9.tar.bz2

    6- Installation DONE but need configure the menu. Press ALT+F2 and type “kmenuedit”. This will bring you GUI menu that we can edit.

    7- Navigate to Internet > Web Browser (Firefox Web Browser)

    8- At “Command” form/box, change with this new location=/usr/local/bin/firefox/firefox

    9- Close all Firefox(if running) and try start from the menu.

    I not really sure what this will cause. But for now, i found no problem..Please leave comment and let me know about what i did or you have other easy way to update firefox on BT4

    ubuntuzilla has an installer that works great with bt4. will even keep your tabs.

    SourceForge.net: ubuntuzilla

    It involves adding them to your repositories. (do this at your own risk - its not an official bt4 release)
    but works great for me.

    There are update scripts around here for doing so if you look for them.

    tar: Old option `f' requires an argument.
    Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.

    Talking Re: Install 3.6.9 on BT4

    Step 1 : Go to /etc/apt/sources.list and edit it using kate to enter a new line ...
    deb http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main

    or in Terminal Directly copy-paste this...
    echo -e "\ndeb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null

    Step 2:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29




    Step 3:
    sudo apt-get update

    Step 4:
    sudo apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build

    This will upgrade your firefox to it's latest stable version.
    If any problem the refer to this URL http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ubuntuzilla/index.php?title=Main_Page

    you need to unzip the file first
    root@bt:~# tar -jxvf firefox-3.6.13.tar.bz2

    then cd in to the directory and dpkg -i the .deb file
    don't worry about me I am msfconsole retarded
