Firefox is a great browser. 100 million downloads so far.

And it's very extensible. You can add some marvellous plugins and extensions to it like delicious.

I'm having a tough time upgrading my Mozilla Firefox on my Linux boxes. When I get the procedure down, I'll post it.

Linux and Unix systems

* If Firefox 1.5.0.1 is installed to a location with spaces in the
path, it may not be able to set itself as default browser and may keep
prompting at startup. The work around is to install into a path without
spaces.

* GNOME integration does not work properly with Fedora Core 3. Users
of Fedora Core 3 will need to download and install
linc-1.0.3-3.1.i386.rpm. After installing the RPM, perform the following
command in the directory you installed Firefox 1.5.0.1 into (you will need
write permission):

touch .autoreg

The next time you start Firefox 1.5.0.1, GNOME integration should be
functional.

* firefox -remote (mozilla-xremote-client) no longer works on urls
containing commas, and is deprecated. firefox -new-window /url/ will open
the url in a new window; firefox -new-tab /url/ will open the url in a new
tab.

See what I mean? It's just not cut and dried.
