how to check for dependencies on Linux/BSD?

Hi, so i found this excellent article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux and I unzipped/extracted the firefox-77.0.1.tar.bz2 file.

By the way, am glad to know I don't have to compile it. Tis a relief :)

So the article above says to check this list @ https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/77.0.1/system-requirements/#software-requirements for "required libraries". I am really good at the command line except for checking library dependencies. :/

Last link shows these 5:

  • Bulleted list item GTK+ 3.4 or higher
   * Bulleted list item    GLib 2.22 or higher
   * Bulleted list item    Pango 1.22 or higher
   * Bulleted list item    X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended)
  • Bulleted list item libstdc++ 4.7 or higher

My fear is i'll have to search around a while for the exact package name since sometimes capitalization and dashes matter when using apt, aptitude, or synaptic.

Here's what I am trying so far. I started with libstdc++ since that's all lower case. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ $ apt list | grep libstdc++ | grep -v unstable ... ... (super long list of lots of different libstdc++) ... libstdc++6/stable 8.3.0-6 i386 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ So since that ends with version 8.3 and that's higher than the "4.7 or higher" in the official list above, then I'm good. (By the way, just a plain `apt list libstdc++` returned no results.)

And substituting the word 'pango' in the above command gives a similarly long list that looks good, i think. Same with 'gtk3', 'glib2', and 'xorg'.

Oh, i think i've answered my own question :) but maybe went the scenic route with my command since i did not know the exact package names.

Anybody have a faster way of checking for these? Pretty please? :)

P.S. By the way, I'm using Debian but in my experience it wouldn't matter if i was using Arch or even one of the BSD's right now. Yes, tools are slightly different like apt/dpkg, or ports but am mostly curious for what exact package names to search for to save me time. :)

Thanks, you all rock. Love the community here though,

Wireguard VPN Blocking https://addons.mozilla.org

After my browser updated to 77.0.1(64bit), it won't load https://addons.mozilla.org. I get a "403 Forbidden" on my screen. Other sites, including mozilla.org, load fine.

I disabled uBlock. I cleared my cache, cookies, etc. I unchecked "Enable DNS". I reinstalled 77.0.1 over my current installation. No luck.

When I disable the VPN on my router, I CAN access https://addons.mozilla.org. I use Mullvad Wireguard VPN on my GL.iNet GL-AR750S.

Before the FireFox update, I did not have this issue. I don't know how this will effect my installed addons. I doubt they will auto-update unless I somehow whitelist the url to bypass my VPN.

I will pass the issue on to Mullvad, as well.

Thanks

I'm running Windows 10. Firefox was being very laggy so I did a Firefox refresh but that didn't solve the laggy problem so I did a Windows 10 Refresh.

After the Refresh I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox and copied the old profile folder (which was also on the latest Firefox version) to the new profile folder. The first start worked fine but if I restart Firefox I get a blank grey window with the words "Window ID Main Window". If I do a safe mode start of Firefox it works fine but I don't have access to my extensions.

What can I do to check?

Have new mac with catalina & installed Firefox browser ok last week. Now it's suddenly missing from apps folder !. Trying to re-install but keeps failing....download 77.0.1.dmg ok. click & open creates small firefox icon & popup message instructing to drag the icon onto the Application folder icon in the dock. This causes the app store to open but with a message saying 'unable to connect to app store' when I close the message the app store is open but no sign of the firefox app. New download or reboot have no effect. What am I doing wrong? Regards Phil

Nach dem Start von Firefox öffnet sich das Fenster aber: ohne Inhalt, ohne Adresszeile, ohne Menüleiste - es ist nichts vorhanden. Nur ein weißes Rechteck. So dass nicht einmal der Reparatur-Modus von Firefox gestartet werden kann. Man kann zwar irgendwo intuitiv herumklicken, aber man kann mit dem neuen popup nichts anfangen, s. Beispiele, da beim Klick auf einen Parameter nichts kommt.

Virenprüfung (Kaspersky in der akt. Version): keine Verbesserung Firefox-Start abgesichert: dto.

Deinstallation und Neuinstallation der aktuellen Version 78.02. : gleiches Ergebnis

In Edge ist das Problem nicht vorhanden.

I installed firefox, after the first start it asks to create profile, I choose to create new one, use default folder, but it says that profile cannot be created as this folder isn't writable. Why is that? I opened that folder and I can write files into it and create subfolders. It means that folder is writable. What's the browser that I can't even start after installation?

But I have never seen it happening with any other application on my system. I see new major version release in firefox, but they never address these issues.
