Re: Installing Firefox


I my opnion we should ship 13.04 with firefox, most people I have installed
Ubuntu GNOME says that no problem to manually install Chromium but Firefox
must comes by default. It is the same LibreOffice.

Just created a blueprint last night so we can track some ideas for 13.04.

Ah, thanks for the type about Firefox installation.
