That was the page I followed to get to the point I'm at. Doesn't make
much sense that KDE would have to go and ldap/krb/ogg/etc installed to
make room for mozilla/unstable.
I ended up just downloading the installer from mozilla.org and got it
installed that way. Which leads me to the next question.
I installed the latest mozilla thinking that a problem I have displaying
large graphics might go away. It did not... large images viewed in
mozilla/konq cause my desktop to freeze. Anyone seen this before?
