Re: Running Firefox instead of Iceweasel package?

Hi Erin,

I read a blog comment that someone started running the newest binary directly from Firefox instead of the iceweasel package. Is this even possible?? If so I'd like to try it, but don't want to break anything. Is it as easy as just downloading the Linux package from mozilla.com and installing it in /usr/local??

I extract the Firefox tarball in /opt.
Then I put an icon in my panel and configure it.
In the Application tab, the 'Command:' line should read the following:

Command: '/opt/firefox/firefox'

Greetings, Manon.
