There seems to be a DPI deamon error with Dillo (YUM dill with fish)

HOWEVER:

Use Pupget to download Opera (and hey why not use that)
Use Pupget to uninstall Opera now or later dependent on requirements
Use Opera to download Firefox
Click on Firefox tgz file in rox
Select all and extract
Find firefox directory and run install

Running Firefox from BareBones right now . . .
using above method

That's funny. I used Dillo to download Firefox in Bare Bones. Everything seemed to work OK.

Burned Firefox 1.0.4 elsewhere but forgot the “all” while unzipping. Nice not having to fish too long. Using a directory in my-applications .

can you add firefox, remove Mozilla and Thunderbird and not break anything then?
(or more exactly, not install it to start with when building your liveCD, then add firefox?)

Maybe this thread will help.

if you remove all the browser packages, Unleashed may not be happy ... i made a dummy firefox package (called firefox-dummy), which has a pinstall.sh file with this line in it:

echo -n "firefox" > /tmp/rightbrwsr.txt

which seems to keep Unleashed happy

firefox seems to take about 21 megs of hard drive space

i'm running the Firefox 1.1 Alpha (Deer Park) right now
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/deerpark/releases/alpha1.html

it seems to run faster than 1.04
adblock and mouse gestures work ok

it has a forward-dns-requests feature, so you can connect directly to Tor without leaking your dns requests to a dns server, so you don't need to use something like Privoxy

are you planning on making a DotPup or Unleashed for it?

If I'm successfull at icewm I might try to do a firefox 1.0.4 unleashed, using the 1.0pre as a model.

Papaschtroumpf, you are way ahead of me. Partly because I am very busy a lot of the time.

I would love to be able to get my hands on an icewm and firefox unleashed. they were top of my list. If you do do the firefox unleashed, can you do an adblock extension either as a seperate unleashed package or as aprt of the firefox package?

If you make these packages, please let me have them.

I've ran in some trouble building the iso so I need to work through it, but yes, I intend to share anything I make, that's the whole point isn't it?

i can't upload a package larger than 1 meg ... so a Firefox dotpup would be too big

but i can easily make a dotpup that will download and install Firefox (or Thunderbird or Opera)

and/or i can make a dotpup that will download Firefox and make an Unleashed package

Firefox and Thunderbird are very easy to install anyway ... download the tgz file ... unzip it ... and run it ... you don't even need the installer

I wonder if they carry a lot of "bagage" that takes unnecessary RAM, like the firefox start page, etc...? probably not much more than 1% of the total package I would guess.

when you find what you want to use how do you remove the others you never plan to use. and also what about defaulting it so those other ones never see the light of day again
