FireFox version 0.9 is released. Download from HERE.

Install instructions HERE.

Release Notes HERE.

How I installed it:

My old install was at /usr/lib/firefox and my old plugin directory was a link to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

1. Download firefox-0.9-i686-linux-gtk2+xft-installer.tar.gz as the root user to /root. Open a terminal window (as root) and issue the command:

cd /root

2. Untar the file with the command:

tar -xvzf firefox-0.9-i686-linux-gtk2+xft-installer.tar.gz

cd firefox-installer

./firefox-installer


3. Exit firefox and then cd /usr/lib

4. mv firefox firefox_old

5. mv /root/firefox-installer firefox

6. take care of your plugins:

cd /usr/lib/firefox

rm -rf plugins

ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins plugins


(if you plugins are not already in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins ... issue this command:

cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

cp /usr/lib/firefox_old/plugins/* .


7. Now setup an executeable to run firefox.

cd /usr/bin
rm -rf firefox
ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox firefox


It should be working by typing the command:

firefox

Has anybody noticed firefox0.9 crashing alot? No error message or anything, just completely closing by itself. Nut only the active window, but rather all firefox windows that are open. It was so annoying I had to go back to 0.8.
