I keep tripping over problems with Firefox (v18.104.22.168) that are wearing
me down. I'd like advice on the best setup for my needs. I'm using
As I understand it, I need the firefox package installed, otherwise
aptitude will remove ubuntu-desktop and others (I have ubuntu installed,
as well as kubuntu). I'm happy to install Firefox in /opt, but I'll get
However, I need to install extensions that are not packaged, and this
often seems to result in the extension not working in Firefox.
For example, currently, I have the HTML Validator extension installed,
but it does not work. Worse than that, every time I load FF, the
extension instigates a page load informing me that a "dynamic C library
contained in the extension could not be found".
In addition, after I run "Update all extensions", it's common that some
extension break. For example, I've just updated the "Web Developer"
extension, and it now reports that "This feature requires the DOM
Inspector to be installed" when attempting to use the View Style
Information function. (The DOM Inspector is installed.)
Now, a while back I installed FF in /opt and adjusted alternatives, but
I still ran into problems when updating due to permissions.
Clearly, this is way to much hard work for something that should "just
work", so I'd like advice on the way to proceed. Thanks.
