    Firefox Install Error


    Has anybody seen this error when installing Firefox:

    Invalid UTF8 string passed to pango_layout_set_text()
    *** eeeeeeee = [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520006 (NS_ERROR_FILE_TARGET_DOES_NOT_EXIST) [nsIFile.remove]" nsresult: "0x80520006 (NS_ERROR_FILE_TARGET_DOES_NOT_EXIST)" location: "JS frame :: file:///usr/local/firefox/firefox-installer/components/nsExtensionManager.js :: ensureExtensionsFiles :: line 245" data: no]

    I downloaded the tar.gz, extracted it into usr/local/firefox
    Then I ran the firefox-installer, and it just stopped and gave me this error.
    So I deleted the directory it was in, and tried again. The same thing happened, and I'm kind of stuck.
    Any help on this would be appreciated, since I don't really know what I'm doing.

    Where did you get this download? It sounds corrupted. Try using a different download.

    Yes, I ws logged in as root when I did all of this. Any suggestions?...

    O.k. man, you were right!!! That's terrific. I downloaded it again, and it worked like clockwork!... FANTASTIC!!! Thanks man. One more question: How would I go about eliminating MOZILLA 1.4 from the system completely, and making sure that the system uses FIREFOX as the default browser for everything? Oh, and are there any cool plugins I should know about that I might download with it? (I mean if you're running it, and you know of any..)

    well, if mozilla was installed during your system installation and you're using a rpm-based distro [mdk, red-hat, etc.] then just go to the rpm manager and remove it, or type in the CL:
    rpm -e package [replace package with mozilla]

    OR: just go to the location its stored in [usually usr/local/] and delete the folder, that probably works.

    to set the default browser, you can do that in firefox's preferences.

    ps - make sure to backup your bookmarks and extensions that i'd recommend are magpie and adblock.

    I'm running Fedora Core 1
    yeah, I think Mozilla was installed with it.
    Unfortunately, when I looked up the preferences thing for Firefox, it says that only works for windows systems.
    Is installing Java complicated?
    How about FLASH?
