Well, Mario, 
I was glad and happy for your help how to install FF2 additionally to
FF3 here !
Your suggested procedure worked like a charm !!
Thank you !!!

Unfortunately FF2 does not work anymore as expected and like under 7.10
FF3 seems to have spoilt something to let FF2 run properly. ;-(

Myself I already have tried to remove the WHOLE FF stuff but ...
... without deleting the FF data/s in the respective home folder. ;-|

As a last action to 8.04 & FF3:
Today I will repeat and do the complete removal of FF3 again ...
... and then install a maiden FF2 only ! ;-)

Cheers, svobi
