What you are describing as "opening firefox" is actually installing gtk2 and then opening firefox. You only have to install gtk2 once, but installing multiple times doesn't hurt. The script to install gtk2 is "/usr/bin/start_gtk2", in case you want to put it in a firefox-load script. When I make the next firefox uci (unless someone beats me to it), I'll have it install gtk2 before it runs.
As for streaming, the firefox 1.0.6 that comes with DSL has several user options set, including a DSL-oriented home page, and several default download actions. firefox-18.104.22.168.tar.gz does not have these.
In addition, firefox-22.214.171.124.tar.gz (the extension, not the mozilla binary) has a bug. It improperly sets the permissions of your tmp directory. I just noticed that. I'll fix it soon. As a workaround, after you load gtk2 and firefox tar gz, run the following command at a command prompt (be root):
|Code Sample |
|chmod 4777 /var/tmp|
This will undo the bug, and all users can once again write to the tmp directory.
