20090804 firefox-3.5.2 [VL6.0]
« on: August 04, 2009, 10:02:31 am »
toothandnail has built a new Firefox package for VectorLinux 6.0.
   
      
   
Code: [Select]
firefox: Firefox (Mozilla Firefox Web Browser)
firefox:
firefox: Firefox 3 is the next generation release of the award-winning
firefox: Firefox web browser from Mozilla.
firefox: To comply with Mozilla trademarks, and to assure quality control,
firefox: this is the official Mozilla build, packaged for VectorLinux.
firefox:
firefox:
firefox: License: MPL 1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1
firefox: Author:  Mozilla Foundation <drivers@mozilla.org>
firefox: Website: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/
   
This release fixes a number of security problems. See here for details:

http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox35.html#firefox3.5.2

I'm very short of time at the moment, but I hope to have time to build a version for Vectorlinux 5.9 in the next couple of days.

After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.

Now if I could only get spell checking working on it... any clues... no prob with seamonkey, which unfortunately seems really shaky on my machine and crashes multiple times a day - not the right place I suspect... but any clues...

Works fine, except as with all previous versions running a flash video and
clicking on fullscreen freezes firefox. Have to kill it with killall -9 firefox-bin.

Is this unique to my machine?

No such problem with epiphany.

I just tried it on my laptop and Firefox didn't freeze. I'm using the latest version of Flash (just downloaded it from Adobe and installed it a couple of days ago).

I just opened different websites for flash playing in fullscreen. It seems the freeze in firefox
is unique to this site  http://www.ardmediathek.de/ard/servlet/ and I show a sample URL:

http://www.ardmediathek.de/ard/servlet/content/2822446;jsessionid=43161B403EACFF3B45197D6F45F29B3E

It is in German, however, clicking on Fullscreen does not need any language skills. ;)

Your sample URL ran fine fullscreen for me on Firefox 3.5.2 with the very latest Flash. I tried this on my 2 GHz Celeron laptop with VL 6 Light.

Thanks GrannyGeek!

Interesting. I do have the latest flash as well. Must be in my box of  my very, very old .mozilla home directory.
Will check on that.

Working fine for me including spellchecking and language packs.

Lyn:  If you are running with American English rather than British English for your default language you have to install the American English dictionary and then it will work. 
eMachines EL-1300G desktop, 1.6GHz AMD Athlon 2650e CPU, 4GB RAM, nVidia GeForce 6150 SE video
CentOS 6.5 (will try VL64-7.1 soon)

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4727,  Intel Pentium T2080 / 1.73 GHz, 2GB RAM, Intel GMA 950

HP Mini 110 netbook, 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 2GB RAM, Intel 950 video, VL 7.1

Went to the test VL-6-STD box on my second HD. Logged-in as root. Opened firefox and the problem is the same. Firefox freezes when clicking on Fullscreen in the mentioned website.
Strange, strange.
