I use Debian wheezy and the official Firefox binaries.
Just go to the Firefox website and hit the download button. It'll give you a .tar.bz2 with
firefox/ inside. Extract that somewhere you have read/write access to--I used
/opt/firefox/. After that, add that directory to your
$PATH (e.g. open up
~/.profile and add something like
PATH="/opt/firefox:$PATH"). Firefox's own updater should be able to update the software with no problems. Setting up any sort of desktop or menu shortcut shouldn't be difficult, just set it to run
firefox (or the full pathname) and to use the icon in the
How do I define my own keyboard shortcuts in Firefox under Linux? Make whatever keys I want perform whatever action I want and whatnot?
Running Debian 64-bit. Tried to enable multiarch to install Wine 32bit. I was suggested these commands by the "wine64-bin helper package." I ran these commands as root:

Same idiot again. I'm going to go ahead and just backup and reinstall, but if anyone has had this happen before and got it fixed, you can post it. I imagine I'm not the only one, even if it seems like it from the google results I got.
I need Java for homework. I installed it and this is the error I keep getting http://tinypic.com/r/2ir2kjq/

I recently bought a Gateway DX4375-UR22. It came with a 1 terabyte hard drive. I turned it on, and it booted up using Ubuntu. Me being me, I stupidly decided to take it apart. I put it back together, and now there is a problem with the hard drive. Everything else works fine, except for the hard drive. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 1000 Gigabyte. I decided to try it in another computer, but the other one does not recognize it as a drive. I tried putting a hard drive from another computer into the Gateway to see if it would boot, but no luck. The seagate drive spins, but it is not transferring data or being recognized. Can I save the drive? How can I boot up the computer?
