I have a 32bit Ubuntu 10.10 (maverick) and as I want this version to stay the same I've edited /etc/sources.list as follows:
[CODE] edit unsupported use leading space to preformat &/or < b r /> & nowiki tags ~J99
# Required deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick main restricted universe multiverse deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick-updates main restricted universe multiverse deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick-security main restricted universe multiverse # Optional deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick-backports main restricted universe multiverse deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu maverick universe
All fine untill here... I also needed my firefox to be in the 10.0 version and to do so, I've fetched manually the tar.bz2 package from firefox' page dedicated to old releases; uninstalled the old one using 'Software Manager' and installed this new package by giving the following commands to the CLI:
root@server: tar -xjvf firefox-10.0.tar.bz2 -C /opt root@server: ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
I can launch firefox from the CLI and it opens, I can browse the web, etc...
My problem is that an apparent error/warning message is sent to the stdout saying «failed to create drawable»
Do you know what it is and how to correct it?
Furthermore, I would like to add this app to the graphical menu in «Applications > Internet» section/menu.
Thank you very much for the help
Yours sincerely, sebastiaopburnay

I am rather a newbie with respect to Ubuntu.
You may get an answer here, but Ubuntu forums may be a better place regarding the error message.
Normally it is a bad idea to use outdated Firefox, but on a Ubuntu VM at least you should have isolation, and presumably easy recovery procedures.
I see you have already posted http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2125872
Note Chrome folders are correct within Firefox see for instance *https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Chrome
it is not from Google Chrome. The name is coincidental.
If by the may you are using an ESR version currently it should be fx17.x not fx10.x
@sebastiaopburnay: It also seemed strange to me that there was a chrome inside the /opt/firefox folder, but the app is really firefox (it was downloaded from Mozilla).
@nibal: Smt is very wrong. This is chrome, not firefox.
@nibal: You are right. I guess there is a lot of cooperation between Mozilla and Google.
nibal certainly jumps to conclusion that it is related to Google Chrome and not see that it is a coincidence in name as the browser we know as Firefox existed for pretty much six years (as Phoenix 0.1) before the browser Chrome did.
