Installing current Firefox port - Newbie
Trying to make the transition from M$ so please bear with me. I use Linspire on my laptop and while I despise the evil empire, I'm not crazy about continuing to pay Michael for nothing other than the ability to Click-N-Run apps. Be that as it may, while searching for an alternative I stumbled across PC-BSD.
I installed it on my wife's new laptop and I love it. Clean, quick, and the PBI's got us up and running quickly.
After installing Firefox we cannot go to HTTPS pages without PSM manager errors. I've read most the threads regarding PSM errors and I've installed and un-installed a half a dozen times without success.
Searching for an alternative I investigated 'Ports' at the FreeBSD site. I'm getting a handle on that and managed to install a few pgms. without any trouble, with the exception of Firefox. When I use pkg_add -r firefox I get ver. -1.0.3,1 and not the current -1.0.7. As the pkg is accessing the Ports db it points to .../latest/... but I still get -1.0.3,1
What (if anything) am I doing wrong?
It runs fine, but Info reports the oder version. I checked the distinfo file and it says -1.0.7 but that is not what was installed.
As an aside, how do I get clicking on a web link in a Thunderbird email to open Firefox (or Konqueror for that matter)?
Thanks for any help or insight.
