Need noninteractive way to install Mozilla, and per-user plugins?
Downloading the tarball for Mozilla 0.9.x for Linux sets up a version without Java, or other necessary plugins. Unfortunately, the "download plugin" dialog doesn't work in a root-installed environment running as a user -- it downloads the plugin, and fails to install it with a cryptic message, since the user doesn't have the appropriate permissions. It seems to me that: a) There needs to be a noninteractive method (RPM or tarball) to install a complete functional browser, including plugins. There may be such a method, but if so, it isn't widely advertised. b) It should be possible for a user to install "private" plugins, that would go into their respective ~/.mozilla directory instead of in the global installation.
One can install a complete browser from rpm... one can then have a script copy the NS4.x plugins into the plugins dir And this is a duplicate of bug 45699 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 45699 ***
