from the configuration-file-clean-up dept.
During the weekend we will install the latest versions of Firefox (Webbrowser) and Thunderbird (Mailclient) on the DPHYS3 Linux workstations.
This means that in half a year you shouldn't be using Mozilla anymore but Firefox and Thunderbird. Mozilla is no longer under active development and Firefox / Thunderbird are its successors.
On sunday evening, we will kill any hanging Firefox or Thunderbird to activate the new versions.
First time you start Firefox or Thunderbird, it will create a new profile for you. Everything should be preconfigured and you can surf the web and read your mails without hassle.
They are now configured to open postscript documents with gv, and PDF documents with acreread now, by /etc/mailcap. You can override these settings with ~/.mailcap. Read the manpage of mailcap(5).
More general changes with the new DPHYS3 setup are listed here.
