View Full Version : freebsd 7.2 and firefox 3 and flash 9
March 2nd, 2009, 07:29
I'm running FreeBSD 7.1 now and thinking of upgrading
to 7.2. When you install 7.2 is there a package of
Firefox 3 or do you have to build it from the ports
collection? How about flash 9? I found this article:
Has anybody tried this with 7.2?
Thanks for any advice,

I'm an idiot :-). I got my versions wrong, running
7.0 and ready to upgrade to 7.1! 7.0 has worked so
well I never even think about the version. OK, so
when I upgrade...
Is there a package of Firefox 3 or do you have to
build it from the ports collection?
I understand the procedure for the flash part of it
(how well does that work, BTW?).

I upgraded to 7.1 over the weekend and followed the
procedures to set up flash 9. Nice. And it works with
almost every web page I've tried!
