Certain web sites state browser versions for viewing compatibility, and these are older versions of FireFox. The site does state that FF3.5 & 3.6 are supported and I have a VMWare Image with FF3.6 and the pages are displayed correctly.

After installing the latest version, on Linux, I am not able to run the earlier versions. It seems to re-direct to the latest version.

I still have the script that started FF3.6, which looks for the /usr/lib64 directory and it has the directory /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6, yet when I run up the /usr/bin/firefox-old, I get FF7 started ...

I guess this query is two questions:- 1. How to run multiple versions of FF 3.6 & 7 in Linux 2. Certain sites do not support FireFox above 3.6, and is there a 'compatibility mode' to run FF7 as FF3.6 ??

I have opened the page in Firebug, and the body is indeed empty. There are Javascript modules recorded.

I have modified the original Fedora firefox script from /usr/bin/firefox to be /usr/bin/firefox-old.

Then I modified the script firefox-old to change the LAUNCHER from "/usr/bin/firefox" , which now points to my FF7.0.1 to the $MOZ_PROGRAM which has been setup earlier to the correct binary /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6/firefox


##
## Set MOZ_APP_LAUNCHER for gnome-session
##
export MOZ_APP_LAUNCHER="$MOZ_PROGRAM -no-remote -P Firefox-3.6"
