that looks good, I'm not seeing many problems re adding that installer to smxi, a packaged firefox solves a lot of issues.

I may add both, I'm not sure. As you can see above, there's a few tweaks required to make firefox the true system default, some of those I can't script though.

Hey,h2. What if you maintained it?
In case you don't think it would be troublesome for you then you could offer that to Clem.

no, I'm not going to maintain a package, it's too much work, you have to get changes out too often.

Plus I'd have to deal with learning all that stuff, not for me. I have enough to do with my other script stuff.

I was trying to automate my firefox/iceweasel upgrades

So wrote a script: firefox-afterupgrade
:: Code ::

# replace iceweasel by forefox
# should be run after an iceweasel upgrade
# from http://techpatterns.com/forums/about1435.html
# Assuming downloaded into /opt

# Only needs to be done once -- the first time
# chown <username> -R /opt/firefox
mv /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox-iw
ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox



However I dont like to get the diversion message.
So I wrote
:: Code ::

rm /usr/bin/firefox
ln -s /usr/bin/iceweasel /usr/bin/firefox


But I still get the diversion

You can update these instructions, since 64 bit builds of Firefox and Thunderbird are available from Mozilla for quite some time already.
