    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

    can you try "apt-get"

    Note: please check the installation before doing that

    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.

    download the latest flash player from Adobe:

    http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

    download the debian software package and then run this command:

    dpkg -i install_flash_player_10_linux.deb

    root@bt:~# mv firefox-3.6.13.tar.bz2/usr/local/bin
    mv: missing destination file operand after `firefox-3.6.13.tar.bz2/usr/local/bin'
    Try `mv --help' for more information.
    root@bt:~# #mv firefox-3.6.13.tar.bz2/usr/local/bin
    root@bt:~# # cd/usr/local/bin
    root@bt:~# tar jfxvf firefox-3.6.9.tar.bz2
    tar: Old option `f' requires an argument.
    Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
    root@bt:~# #tar jfxvf firefox-3.6.9.tar.bz2
