My Linux distribution uses Mozilla Suite as its browser and email client. The version used is a little old and hasn't been updated at the Xandros site. Rather than play with the system I installed Firefox from Xandros.

Everything went well until I tried to view my Flickr pics. The browser crashed and so I had to reinstall the flashplayer.xpt and files. I had to log in as root and delete the files and copy/paste from my saved flash installer file. I hope that the Linux version of Firefox gets this irritating Flash bug fixed some time.

Everything works fine and although some things are a little different I am in familiar territory. Firefox looks like it is easier to update too. Gee, I have jumped on the bandwagon. (Although I was half on it already using Mozilla).

Get Firefox!

My favourite Firefox feature is Find As You Type. To find something, Just Start Typing!

If it's not already on, you can turn it on using: Tools - Options - Advanced - Accessibility - Begin Finding When You Begin Typing
