I'm using Firefox Nightly on Crunchbang (Debian). There is no version in the repos so I downloaded and extracted the
tar to the home folder. Firefox runs fine but is will ask me to update fairly often since this is the Nightly version. When I try to do the auto update it just says "connecting to server" and never actually does anything.
The workaround I found is that if I run Firefox as
root it will update normally. But I later found that none of the changes/updates made while
root will stay. I think this is just a problem with the permissions but I'm wondering if anyone has ran into this before?
