Say you want to install the latest firefox in a recent puppy. Older puppies may need other libraries for the latest mozilla's browsers. Go to:

http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/

or

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/

and surf to the desired firefox version with your locale and download the compressed tar.bz2. Click on the archive and extract all to /usr/local. Go to /usr/bin and delete any link you have to other versions of firefox. Then in console:

Code:
ln -s /usr/local/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox


Open with geany /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser and change it to:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/firefox:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/X11R7/lib
exec firefox "$@"


After saving right-click on /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser and click Properties: don't give write permissions to the changed defaultbrowser.

Right-click now on a html file (your saved bookmarks for example) and click on Set-Run-Action. Choose:

Code:
defaultbrowser "$@"


for all html files.

The same procedure for seamonkey. You can use:

http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/releases/

or

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/releases/

and change firefox with seamonkey in above instructions.

Clicking now on Browse button on your desktop open the desired browser.
