Sorry I didn't want to get involved with this questions, but I hate leaving things unfinished Smile
ok The problem is that FirePup and Seamonkey both have system links that fall into the usr/lib/ directory, they both have the same name also, so when you install FirePup it cross's out seamonkey's system links and Seamonkey stops working, and if you then install seamonkey overtop of FirePup, it cross's out FirePup's system links. There is a way around it, but I haven't tried it yet, because well I usually only use one Browser.
But here we go what you have to read up on is setting "export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME"
once you figure out that, then both will run at the same time.
I've never tried it, but read up on it, So if you figure it out, please post how you did it and maybe someone could make a simple script for it.

For what it's worth, I have 5 Puppy installs where Firepup and Seamonkey happily coexist.I use Firepup 99% of the time but Seamonkey still works.

Full installs of 4.20 Deeper Thought, 4.20 SUE, Woof 4.76 and 3.01 as well as 4.2.1 live saving to usb. No browser problems at all.

It is interesting how and/or why something will work on one installation and not work on another.

Still my favorite Puppy browser.

It seems to me that the firefox/seamonkey launch scripts are designed to include their own folder in the path so no linking is required but if the launch script is outside of the home folder then this doesn't work. I've had seamonkey and firefox co-exist just fine

Just found another strike against FirePup, as much as I love it.
Google Docs doesn't seem to work with FireFox one series, or at least with FirePup.
So I'm looking for the best alternative. And if it can coexist with FirePup, all the better.
UPDATE: Just downloaded Firefox 3 straight off Mozilla's site, extracted it, and it runs alongside FirePup. I did upgrade Adblock Plus, and when I ran FirePup, it said that FirePup was incompatible with that version of Adblock. Any tips on how to tweak Firefox for best performance, or what can be done concerning the FirePup Adblock issue? It hasn't crashed on me yet, but I only just started using it. Don't know anything about compiling

Tuxx old chap, how can I get speed dial to run in your rather excellent firepup 0.4.3.1?

I have installed the speed_dial.pet you supplied with an earlier version but nothing seems to happen. By the way, the 'help' tab still reads the version as 1.5.0.12 , though I have the new tabs on my menu bar suggesting to me that I am using the latest version.

Keep up the good work, this is the only browser that could challenge Opera 10 as my first choice. Very Happy

Been testing small browsers in 4.35 (upcoming 4.4) and compared to Dillo and Midori, Firepup is faster and renders pages much better.Firepup is still holding up well. Smile

I installed in Quirky 1.1rc. Seems to work ok.
It did takeover as default browser and I had to change default back to SeaMonkey.
Seems to be really fast loading.
Any plans to do more work on this?
