In a previous post, I shared some terminal commands in order to install firefox 4 in ubuntu.
The problem is that when the stable version was out and I tried to update my current installation the version remained “pre xxx” and the title bar said “Minefield”.
So, I figured out how to get rid of it and install the latest and stable version…
Few weeks ago, I wanted to delete permanently a secondary facebook account that I created to perform some experiments. Quickly I discovered that I could easily deactivate the account but I could not find a way to delete it.
For those who wonder about the difference between a deleted and a deactivated account: The deactivated account can be activated again anytime and all information and photos are still available. On the other hand a deleted account is an account that holds no information or photos and it does not exists anymore.
I did some research and found the solution. So let’s delete some accounts!
Click submit and follow all the instructions. You will be asked to fill in a CAPTCHA box and provide your account password.
Don’t log in or use this account in any way for two weeks, otherwise the deletion is automatically canceled. Don’t interact with facebook in any way. This includes the “Share” or “Like” buttons in blogs/websites.
STEP #4 After 2 weeks, try to login to your account to comfirm your account successful deletion.
Note that facebook often changes the deletion way, so if you find this article old or outdated, just let me know.
I have just installed the new firefox 4 on ubuntu and here is a quick guide to do so.
Open a new terminal window and copy-paste the following:}
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update (this might take some time)
sudo apt-get install firefox-4.0
And you are ready to use firefox 4.
In my computer, I had to update manually some shortcuts, but this is not needed normally. Bonus: You can test your new browser’s performance with Acid3. It scores really high, but to be honest the main reason I keep using firefox is the plugins.
