There's a thread on fedora-devel about making Firefox the default browser:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-d ... 00625.html

I've been using firefox 0.8 for the last week and I must say I really dig it. The adblock extension rocks. Dag hasn't packaged a 0.9.2 yet but will soon enough, no doubt.

I'm not sure how to package extensions as RPMs. If I find out how, I'll put in a few of the choice ones. Any other candidates?

For that matter, I hear RPMing 0.9.x is a bit problematic. I haven't looked into it though as I'm being lazy and waiting for dag. ;)

Maybe blag could host a mirror of all the extensions? I would host them if my ISP hadn't blocked all incoming requests that are HTTP or FTP. I don't know how they did it, and they did it just to me. Mind you, i was running httpd, vsftpd, pygopherd and some other stuff too :P . I loved my blag 9002 server. But its gone now :cry: . But back on topic. I don't know how to go about mirroring them...and also, would it be legal? I don't know about how legal it is so meh. It would be nice tho :D

Ya, you could mirror them assuming they are Free Software. I imagine 99% of them are.

I'll only host ones I can turn into RPMs then pop them in the repository. It may be very simple to package them. Perhaps just drop one file into /usr/lib/firefox/plugins or something.

from what i've read on the mozilla site, it doesn't seem to be that simple :( . i'm looking into figuring out whether rpm has a function to execute a program, so what could happen is that the rpm executes firefox like this:

sh firefox <path to xpi>

i'll experiment with it and see how things go.

rpm can execute a command, see the %pre and %post sections of a SPEC file.

Also, at http://rpmseek.com there are a few firefox plugins so you can check out how they are built there.
