I'm trying to install firefox on my laptop but I'm getting an error when it gets around to installing nspr-4.4.1 (compiling
it craps out with
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthread

Looking around it looks like something with(and I'm really just guessing wildly here) linux compat threading something something or that it's supposed to say -pthread. This is my uneducated guess :wink: All help is GREATLY appreciated! I really don't agree with konqueror....

Have you tried to install the precompiled version of firefox, run `pkg_add -r firefox'. By the way, I've found the newest Konqueror renders pages alot faster than Firefox you might want to give that a shot..

Good luck.

I think I'll try that idea myself. I found the older versions of Firebird ran much better than firefox. I will give the ol' Konq a shot.

I'm more bothered by navigational issues (within the program itself, not on the web) more than page rendering. My internet connection doesn't really allow me to pick up on differences there :wink: hehehe....
