    Mozilla Firefox on Debian Sarge

    A word of warning to those you of using Mozilla Firefox on Debian - I just tried to install the latest version (security update - 1.0.4-2sarge2), and it caused Firefox to crash frequently. Having looked at the bug list, this is far from an isolated incident. It might be fine for some people, but it definately wasn't for me. At the moment I've gone back to 1.0.4-2, but I'd prefer to be on the latest version, seeing as it is a security update.

    Has anybody else been having problems?

    Mike

    my problem with the 2sarge2 security update is it doesn't allow middle-clicking on anything more than a simple <a> - e.g. <a><b>foo</b></a> or <a><img></a> don't work

    Hmm, I might do that - any problems with 1.0.6?

    not in my experience, but my firefox lives pretty much on its own in a 32-bit chroot (on amd64 debian), so if any of the packages it depends on are system-threatening, it doesn't really affect me
