Downloaded this from mozilla.com. Figured I'd try installing it in
/opt. To my surprised the archive contained the entire self-contained,
compiled binary directory tree. Moreover, it grabs and shares user
settings (like bookmarks and prefs) from the Ubuntu version. I find
this version much faster and less memory hungry. I moved the entire
structure from ~/temp/firefox to /opt/firefox, and created a symlink to
the executable in /usr/local/bin. Tuned the Thunderbird about:config so
that links open in the correct version. Everything is working fine.
Now my question is...
...how do I safely remove the 1.0.x version that is included with Ubuntu.
