How to build browser and locale packages for Ubuntu/Debian

Since Ubuntu Mozilla Daily ppa is no longer regularly updated (see https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa ), I want to build my own self-signed Firefox packages similar to the ones created by Ubuntu Mozilla Daily; but I can't find anywhere the way they are built.

Actually I successfully compile Firefox, so I need just the necessary informations in order to build a deb package with it.

Thank you

This should be a simple process, as I have done it before on other computers - but the icon is only in my dock as a "?", which I click on , and then it opens up to the Fox/World icon. As soon as I shut down the computer - the Firefox icon disappears.

Dozens of people have strongly complained about Yahoo inserting itself in Firefox and hiding itself so it cannot be removed. This has been going on for at least a month.

Why doesn't Mozilla do something to prevent Yahoo from HACKING into Firefox.? It is an obvious attempt to pre-empt people's browser of choice. Surely there is someone in the Mozilla group who can either alter the code to block Yahoo or at least come up with a solution that lets the average user remove the stupid Yahoo software.

Thanks

I set up Sync on my PC a few weeks ago in preparation for purchasing an iPad. I now have it.

I have just installed Foxbrowser and I am putting the code it gives me when I 'Paira Device'. The app just has a message saying it 'Cannot Setup Sync' pop up. I've been searching and I cannot find any results on this specific problem. The device shows that it cannot setu[ after I enter the code into FF on my PC, so it has some sort of connection.

I have seen a mention of sign in to sync. I don't have that option, just Tools>Setup Sync. I guess I would explain it that I have set the browser to look like its older version.

Thanks for any help.

I have seen this question already posed in the forums about updating the latest version of Firefox, however I am not trying to update the version, I am trying to download the latest version of Firefox to Windows through Chrome. I click the download button on the Mozilla website and I extract the file. At this point the computer asks me if I want to save the file or run the file. I have tried to just run the file and the computer shoots out this message "You may not have the necessary permissions to use all the features of the program you are about to run. You may run this program as a different user or continue to run the program as the currant user". The window gives me two options, "Run as currant user" (which closes everything when I choose it), and "Run as administrator" (which leaves me with a user name and password which are always wrong). I can't download Firefox and have tried alot of stuff. I feel like it is a security setting in my computer that needs to be adjusted but I don't know enough to start randomly tinkering around.

As in all Forums... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

I have a new computer. I have installed beta. I run beta on 2 other computers a tablet and my phone. It instructed me that I needed to unlink other devices and start over. My credentials will not work and a reset email is not being sent. I would like to get my devices logged in and linked again. If it isn't possible I will reluctantly move back to Explorer. Mozilla has been so easy to use until now???? Very frustrating.

RE: "Access Denied" question following install of Firefox. I have same problem. Details follow: I tried opening in Safe Mode which did not work. I have Administrative access. When I click the general tab in properties I get a message that "firefox.exe" does not exist. Neither that file nor any other "install" type of file appears in the Mozilla Firefox directory except for "uninstall". I have downloaded and tried to install seven times from six different sources, including Mozilla, all with the same results. I've also tried a number of solutions from the web for this error message with no greater success. I tried, first, doing an upgrade then deleted the older version of Firefox and have done "install" since. Avast, Malwarebytes and Threatfire have found no malware.

I have never had a similar problem with Firefox before and I've used it for years. Anyone have any ideas I haven't already tried? I'm tired of using Internet Explorer! RE: troubleshooting information below--Windown will not open the downloaded file.

I do like to know what is the file that triggers when you launch the Mozilla Firefox for the first time to create the folder under AppData either Local or Roaming because i want to change it to a different name since i want to have 2 versions of mozilla in the same computer and the old version i want it to customize for my company web application only. I have open all the files with extension *.JS but none of them have the parameter to create the folder I have also look into every INI file inside mozilla firefox application but no info was found as well. I have use the ORCA MSI editor to reveal the registry keys but I am not sure since many of them leads to the Mozilla folder but none to the Appdata either Roaming or Local. Please let me know if you have some hints or files that i need to edit to modify that name to perhaps MOZ2015 Thank you in advance for your reply

In went to your site and downloaded the full version. It goes through the process and then when it's over it disappears from the screen. I tried to find the file but it doesn't exist in my apps or hard drive. I also saved it but with the same results. I am using Windows 8.1, and had to download using Internet Explorer because my google chrome stopped working 2 days ago. I tried to fix this myself and the troubleshooter said that my DNS may be unavailable? Thank You
