Re: FC2 - Firefox/Mozilla confusion



Why not just use the .tar files from Mozilla? Extract
them to your /home/username directory and run them
from there and not worry about the RPM thing.

Least that's what I did for Firefox (I use Evolution
for email and such) and it is running fine. Is there
some problem doing that that I am unaware of?

Later,
