I dont know how you do that. But it could be good if you filled a bug report about Firefox 4 and explain to them what not working: Smiley
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/

Then maybe they will fix the problems.

And Bugzilla is the best way to make a request if you miss a program in Pardus to.

The Pardus equivalent is "sudo pisi it". ("pisi help" lists the available commands).

As far as I know the Pardus devs don't go in for having multiple versions available.

I'd say the problem you're having is something that should be reported upstream (i.e. to the Firefox bug system) and then if it gets fixed there, request an update in the Pardus system -- however since they have released with a beta, I guess the plan is to update to the 4.0 release when it comes along.

I have also problem with Firefox 4. Like if I have open many webpages and want to read and write in hotmail at same time.
It close and open and behaving strange then.
But its not only on Pardus 2011:

After all its still a beta so I guess we must wait to the final version before it works fine.

The only thing that is missing is adobe shockwave(which I need for college).

Christopher,

I don't know whether installing the older version of Firefox 3.6 is possible. AFAIK, only the newer version is available in the Pardus 2011 repos. But you might also try installing Opera (it's available in the 2011 repo) and seeing how your website behaves with it.

Also, (just as a reminder) you install new programs using the Package Manager (PiSi). You can use it in two ways: either via its graphical interface (which is the default) or via the command line. Info on using PiSi from the command line can be found in the Pardus Wiki:

http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Pisi_CLI_Usage

HTH,

Konqueror was installed by default on my 64-bit install, and I've just installed chromium-browser and am using it to post this message.

I just tried Chromium, and Konqueror. I will have to install 2009.2 again. I think the website requires adobe shockwave. Its mathzone.com.

When the final version of Firefox 4 is out you can try version 2011 again. Smiley

After talking with one of the developers, I found that we have to wait for the final version of 4.0.

Unfortunately, with the beta 4.0 I can not watch online video in full screen mode.

Maybe the German guys (pardususer.de)  make 3.6?

Hopefully they can, but I would be surprised if the final version doesn't come out in or around March
