Re: Installing Firefox


Hi Jeremy. 

I sure wish I'd used a different title when I posted this, like: "Install Firefox w/o firefox-globalmenu" or something similar.

I did not mean to open a discussion regarding default apps. In fact I'm perfectly happy with what we provide right now, but regarding browsers I have quite old Firefox/mozilla and Opera profiles that I transfer from OS to OS and I just noticed what I thought might be a dependency/recommends problem.

Sorry for any confusion or trouble I may have caused.

Kubuntu did ship a Firefox installer launcher for a while. I don't
think that's something we want as I want users to be able to easily
install anything, not just Firefox.

Let's use a different discussion thread if we want to discuss shipping
LibreOffice and reserve this one for web browsers.
