Huh? Wha? I downloaded Firefox (Deep Park) 1.5 beta yesterday, which in the
About section had the label 1.4. Can you hook me up on that futuristic 1.6?

By the way, 1.5 appears to be breaking some extensions that worked in 1.0.x
so be very cautious...

Are you playing music at the same time? My mixer is broken, so I must stop
the MP3 player in order to get sound in Real Player.

Are there no instructions bound to the the file that you received from the
site? If not, try the package manager in Ubuntu. I haven't used it in
months, so I can't even remember what it's called...

Hope it helps,
