I go directly to the firefox, thunderbird, openoffice, etc. and download the latest releases. I'm running Firefox 1.0.6 on testing (2.6.8-2) with zero problems. Same for TB 1.0.6 and OO 1.9.122. I can't recall every having a problem with firefox running this way. Download the tarball from the FF site, extract the files to a folder (usually called firefox-installer) and then copy the folder to its permanent home (I stick it in /opt). Rename the previous folder (if you have one) firefox.old, then rename firefox-installer, firefox and that's all there is to it. Jonathan -- Please don't cc: your posting to my personal address.
