FireFox 1.0.x on FC3 - Several things to know

While installing the FC3 version of FireFox, you are able to install several extensions - tools to make life easier
After upgrading to FF 1.0.2, serveral extensions where gone. Here is a list of extensions i've installed before the update was available:

Image Zoom 0.1.7 (zomm pics inside webpages) -> not compatible with 1.0
Foxy Tunes 1.0 (handle XMMS via browser)
fireFTP 0.84.3 (ftp-client)
ViewCookies 1.2 (check page source )
Thumbs 0.2 -> not compatible with 1.0 (also if it is stated out on webpage!)
ChatZila 0.9.66 (IRC plugin)
Download Tweak Manager 0.6.3 (add more functionality for downloads)
Close Tab on Double Click 0.1.2 (very useful for tabbed browsing) -> not compatible with 1.0

Especially the last one is very usefull. After updating FF, i was a bit confused why the doubleclick won't work any more...

If you open the extension window (Menu - Tools - Extensions) , you'll see all disabled extensions didn't working with current version of FF.
All Extensions showing "Disabled - not compatible with FireFox 1.0" should be un-installed (right click the extension and select uninstall - or press the uninstall button )

Adding the functionality of doubleclicking tabs again:
Here -> http://twanno.mozdev.org/installation.html you'll find an Extension called "Tab Clicking Options 0.2.1". After installing this tool - and restarting FF - you're able to configure the doubleclick again


The Trab with adding search engines:
It's a permission problem: normal user has no chance to change files in /usr/bin/firefox ...
Also after updating to firefox-1.0.2 the problem still exists...

Solution:
1. quit browser
2. open terminal and get root access (su)
3. start firefox via terminal (firefox)
4. insert the needed search engings with firefox via "Add Engines"
5. quit firefox
6. exit terminal
7. start firefox from FC3 menu

the search engines will appear...
Maybe this problem will be fixed in future releases...


Additional Plugins:
Java:

In addition to this, javaws (Java Web Start) is BROKEN!
The Solution for Java Web Start: http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=26423

Flash-Player:
Download Version 7.r25 -> http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html#Flash and follow the shown instructions

Shockwave-Player
THERE IS NONE AT THE MOMENT!

Thanks for that info. I went to a few sites that have flash and it said that flash was not installed, but was on my previous before I did up2date. Now when I click on install plugin it comes up and downloads the plugin but then fires of install failed, with a manual install next to it. It worked fine this way before the upsdate ran, but now nothing. Also I do not seem to have /usr/bin/firefox but under home/(name)/.mozilla-firefox some of it seems to be there, but the manual install wont work all it says it type in correct path to browser, and I cannot seem to find the correct path. Any clues. Maybe running firefox in su and then run the plugin might work. Like I said it worked fine before it up2dated it self to 1.0.2.

For flash installation, you can also move the files to /urs/lib/mozilla/plugins
Maybe there might be no insallation of FF in /usr/bin/firefox ... then have a look at /usr/lib/firefox... -> permission problem ist still the same (e.g. adding search engines)

Set "French/france" as first by moving up on top order.

"Placer la langue Francais/France au premier ordre comme langue principale de votre navigateur Firefox"

firefox 1 on FC3 could not display chinese char

Hi FC3 member,

Before I begin, I am from Singapore, a newbie to linux, who have very little experience, i have a box with fedora core 3 install, they come together with the lastest firefox ver1,

But after I set all the necessary Character Encoding under the browser setting, I still get hex like display when accessing Chinese website, I was beginning to wonder if I need any language pack, plugin for my firefox/ fedora to be able to display Chinese text. I have search google, it return a lot of stuff but I dunno which one is the right RPM to install.

I have spend like 3 sleepless nite without anyone to help me in linux except google, so I hope the guys can give some advice to my problem. Just some clue will do, to get me started.

the mplayer plugin should work with any file that mplayer itself has the codecs installed for since mplayer itself is the backend.
