Well after all the trouble I had with firefox I switched to Opera for now.  However when
I went to apt-get remove firefox I had a plethora of dependencies and was unable to
remove it without breaking a ton of apps.  Why is this?  It doesn't seem right to me
that so many core applications would be dependent on firefox.  For now I guess I will
have to use Sabayon or something to remove Firefox from the applications menu.  But I
would like to be certain the more savvy could not get it to run.
