I recently upgraded my main workstation to Fedora fc15, and now I have
a major browser problems.
I've been using galeon for what feels like forever and prefer it over
firefox, seamonkey, google-chrome, opera, and the others I've tried.
And I have a set of useful bookmarks that would take a loooooong time
to hand edit and copy to a new browser. Not to mention passwords.
Now even before doing the install, I realized that there was no galeon
rpm in the distribution, but I have many years experience recompiling
packages to 'non-supported' releases and I didn't anticipate any major
OK, I was wrong.
So some questions:
1. First, has anyone figured out (or done) a port to fc15 at this
2. Failing that, does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed?
(I know it has to use the current release of firefox, but I don't know
if the jump to firefox 5 broke that permanently. I'm also wondering
whether there are other problems I haven't run into out. I DID try
installing (in parallel) the last fc14 version of firefox on this
machine and setting MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME to k, but it didn't seem to
3. Finally, if all else fails, I need to convert my bookmarks, cookies,
and saved passwords from my $HOME/.galeon directory so that I can use
them with another browser (either seamonkey or firefox). Does a
utility already exist? If not some suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks in advance,
