do those downloads count towards the world record attempt?

NO, it has to be a FULL DOWNLOAD (NOT AN UPDATE!) and it has to be downloaded over Firefox's home page

Thanks for the link. I just installed those packages in Fedora 9 i386. Everything running smoothly...

By the way, the fsync bug is long gone...

Something weird I noticed with RC1, RC2 and now the final is that it is not using the same bookmark file that FF2 was using! It's using an old copy. I exported my up-to-date bookmark file before installing FF3 and dropped it in my /home/.mozilla/firefox directory but FF3 is still picking up the old copy!

Edit: so they changed something that's worked fine for ages and made it more complicated. What a bunch of idyits. Now I have to muck about deleting the old bookmarks and importing the up-to-date ones :mad:

seems you need firefox3 to run as opposed to firefox. I had both 3b5 and 3 installed at the same time.

How do you erase FF3B5 and install the real FF3 on F9?

Jongi
18th June 2008, 01:59 AM
they are both RPMs. Installed as different filenames

If you have already followed the above without removing the beta (which was installed with FF), then you can keep both the beta and Ff3

beta - firefox
FF3 - frefox3

Which also means when the official repos update 3b5, its likely you will have 2 FF3s on your system.

The 'Organise Bookmarks' tool just does not work. I deleted all the old bookmarks from the list, then imported my newer 'bookmarks.html' file but when I opened 'Bookmarks' on the toolbar, it was back to the old ones! I did it 3 times with the same result and I'm now getting annoyed!

Edit: OK. This time I used the brute-force method and closed down FF3, deleted the sqlite file and restarted. It's now using my newer bookmarks, at last. What a pain in the neck! :confused:

I was almost ready to trash my PC!

I just updated them using yum this removes the older package.

Just as root:

yum update firefox-3.0-1.fc9.i386.rpm xulrunner-1.9-1.fc9.i386.rpm xulrunner-devel-1.9-1.fc9.i386.rpm --nogpgcheck

Who needs to type all that when you can copy and paste? I came here because yum couldn't find the right version of xulrunner, but alas, I must not have the right set of repos enabled because that command failed.

you need to have the koji repo enabled.. there's a howto in the forums somewhere

Thank you. I finally used a little googlemancy to locate the instructions at Fedora:

yum install fedora-packager

Now, let's see if it works...

No, that didn't work, but I followed the link in post 1, got xulrunner and am now using Firefox 3. Thanx, everybody! And, it's not starting up in Work Offline mode any more!

Because Firefox is the default browser in most Linux distros, they decided to keep its ugly, boring look and only make the Windows and Mac versions visually appealing! I installed the OS X version today and it is very attractive compared to the default version on my Linux box! The Tango icons are.... Yawn...

i agree with you, but i think some people kicked up a stink about keeping the boring tango icons or whatever the complain was..but i think themes make it look better anyway

FYI, Firefox 3 is already available in Fedora repository.

Hi Greg,

The problem I have with most themes is they change the whole look of Firefox, not just the icons so it looks different to all the other Gnome apps. I would like a nice attractive icon theme that's on par with the windows and Mac ones. At least give users a choice to use Tango if they want but don't just think that we won't all like the new 'Keyhole' look.

I have a little problem. I used until now leigh123@linux's firefox, which identified itself in the window titlebar as "Build 2008061712"). After updating to the new one from the official fedora repo, the identification as said build remains :confused: . I also updated my wife's machine (which was not previously using leigh123@linux's version and it identified itself correctly after the update as simply "Mozilla Firefox" :eek: . Any ideas?

The final version should identify as build 2008061712 ( i.e built on 17/06/2008 )



Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061712 Fedora/3.0-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0

The firefox rc2 rpm I built was "build 20080530"

Ok, thanks leigh. I suspected the issue has something to do with the new version not updating correctly my firefox profile. So, I deleted the "profiles.ini" file in /.mozilla/firefox and started firefox, forcing it to create a new profile folder. This time the browser correctly identified itself in the window title bar as "Mozilla Firefox" alone. Then, I moved all my files and directories from my previous profile folder to the new one. Everything seems to be ok now, including themes and extensions :D.
