Developer coexistance with normal FF

(Madtom1999) #1

Can someone just confirm that FF and FFdev can co-exist happily on (Ubuntu) Linux with FFdev causing no side effects on FF?


Yes, I have Firefox Release (by Ubuntu) and Dev Edition and Nightly all together running on Ubuntu. Just make sure you install Dev Edition from (I would recommend against any other packages source in this case, the Mozilla bundles work very good and also handle updates very well. I found external ppa or ubuntu-make to be outdated or not working equally out-of-the-box).

In case you would install Nightly then you would need to create an extra profile. But Dev Edition comes with its own profile by default - so, no worries :slight_smile:
