    Need browser help with Puppy Linux


    The default browser is SeaMonkey, and I want to D/L & install Firefox & Opera. So far my explorations haven't revealed any of those browsers in versions suitable for use with Puppy. Am I overlooking something? For instance, the Firefox site recognizes that I'm running Linux and offers a bunch of options, but none seem to match up with Puppy/Gnu.

    I should probably add the primary reason I want to use a different browser. There is a particular site I visit which somehow triggers a prompt box asking me what username I want to proceed with. It's the only site where I use THAT username and it's the only site where that prompt box pops up. Admin there assures me the problem lies with my browser, and other visitors haven't experienced the pesky problem.

    Maybe I'm on the wrong track, and rather than switching browsers I should looking for means to 'tame' SeaMonkey.

    Waddya think?

    from PuppyLinux: FireFox

    Firefox
    1. Download Firefox from Mozilla | Firefox web browser & Thunderbird email client
    2. Install using the following code:

    mv firefox* /usr/local/
    cd /usr/local/
    tar -zxvf firefox*
    rm /usr/local/*.tar.gz

    3. You will want to place a symbolic link to the Firefox executable in /usr/local/bin/
    with a command similar to this:
    ln -s /usr/local/firefox/firefox /usr/local/bin/firefox

    Or use version like Lighthouse Pup, with Mariner.sfs that has Firefox, Opera, Office, etc ready to go
    See LighthousePup for details.
