Configuring FireFox

For : MEPIS Linux

by: je.saist

If you have not heard of FireFox by now, for shame.  FireFox is one of the largest stars the open source world has put forth, and the only browser to take market share away from Microsoft.

Microsoft has good reason to be afraid of FireFox, but the important part is getting the program.

This guide will deal with actually configuring FireFox once it is downloaded.  If you still have not downloaded FireFox, the following two links should be of use.

Firefox Web Download install

Firefox Apt-Get Download

Setting Download Location

1: Click on Edit and then click on Preferences

2: Click on the Downloads link on the left hand side of the page.

3: Hit the down arrow next to Desktop and choose Other

4: Now we are presented with a view of our Personal Files

5: Earlier I created a downloads folder.  If you need to, create a folder.  Then select the location and hit the select button

6: Now every time a file is downloaded Firefox will send it to the downloads folder
