Firefox Hello, instead of the skype-shit
« on: 2015/03/24, 11:23:55 »
Yesterday i installed a newer version of iceweasel from debian experimental, today I found a little grey "smiley" on the toolbar, that was Firefox Hello. I did join me and my wife, tried it and, sometimes I can "phone" my contact sometimes nothing happens, when it works the communication is good. It's still betaversion but maybe and hopefully that can make me get rid of the skype-shit soon.

Anybody else tried it?

hey,
I tried it on my girlfriends computer too, didn't  have too many problems. Although I know very little about it, where does it sit in terms of FSF and open source? I assumed because it was coming from firefox it would be ok, but it did have a 'in association with Telefonica' on it so I'm not so sure. Anyone know?

Yes, this is open source, it's been out since firefox 34 or october 16, 2014  (I use firefox 39)

yeah, thanks piper, good to know. Just tested it on my machine running siduction but because its running iceweasel the latest release is still on 31.5.3 so I can receive call but no make them until I either install Firefox proper or wait until iceweasel catches up.

If you want a newer version of iceweasel use  http://mozilla.debian.net/

if I follow the instructions on http://mozilla.debian.net/ it looks like I will be adding the entire experimental repository to my /etc/apt/sources.list would that mess up my system if I'm already using the unstable repository? I know the instructions say quite clearly "I am running unstable and I want to install iceweasel" but I can't help feeling I might break my system somehow.

I meant installing from Debian experimental not Mozilla.

Maybe everybody knows how to but:

Add debian experimental in your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list: "deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ experimental main contrib non-free"

apt-get update

apt-get -t experimental install iceweasel

As I understan debian experimental can always be in your sources list, apt will only bring something from experimental if you tell it to do so.

Hello vilde,

you are right, but ... not every experimental repo has such a low priority as the debian experimental.
I marked the priority in red colour.

LC_MESSAGES=C apt-cache policy iceweasel
iceweasel:
  Installed: 31.5.3esr-1
  Candidate: 38.0~a2+20150227004023-2
  Version table:
     38.0~a2+20150227004023-2 0
        500 http://mozilla.debian.net/ experimental/iceweasel-aurora amd64 Packages
     37.0~b1-1 0
        500 http://mozilla.debian.net/ experimental/iceweasel-beta amd64 Packages
     36.0.4-1 0
          1 http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian/ experimental/main amd64 Packages
 *** 31.5.3esr-1 0
        500 http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


The beta or alpha development versions will become your installation candidates as soon as you add the mozilla.debian.net experimental repo.
You can use pinning to set your own priorities (man apt_preferences).

greetings

Hi community,
alternatively, can you (instead of Iceweasel) install directly from Mozilla also the "original" Firefox. This has the advantage that the latest versions are there faster. Disadvantage is that you installed outside of the package management.

On the ftp server of Mozilla, you can choose between the official releases, betas and nightly versions (tar-ball).

Download from here: ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox
