Default firefox3 with mplayer-plugin? Any possibility to make them work together.?

Hi!

I have firefox3 installed on my system and this is the browser I use with everything I need - flash, java, etc.. Today I tried to install the mplayer-plugin for firefox3 but I've noticed that it tries to install firefox2 as a dependency of the mplayer-plugin..

Is there a way to install mplayer-plugin without firefox2 and make it work with firefox3?

Thanks for any advices!

try: # make USE_GECKO=firefox3 install .... where ... is your usual target list (e.g. clean distclean)

I think that would probably do it, if not I'm sure someone else has a better idea.

This doesn't work. From the Makefile I have only these options for USE_GECKO - firefox, seamonkey, mozilla

Code:
USE_GECKO=      firefox mozilla seamonkey
Thanks, anyway. Perhaps there is another way to do it.. or not

WITH_GECKO=firefox3 was removed from bsd.gecko.mk on August 9. Here is the commit message:

Revision 1.4: download - view: text, markup, annotated - select for diffs
Wed Aug 6 16:26:17 2008 UTC (5 weeks, 5 days ago) by mezz
Branches: MAIN
CVS tags: HEAD
Diff to: previous 1.3: preferred, colored
Changes since revision 1.3: +4 -4 lines

Remove firefox3 from USE_GECKO; it does not work and wait for xulrunner 1.9
comes in. The xulrunner 1.9 is current in MC ports. It's clear about that
Mozilla folks want us to use xulrunner for SDK/build.
I suggest that the mailing lists will have a lot to say about this. There are probably workarounds to it there as well.

Try adding xulrunner or firefox3 in the Makefile. Then do as advised above WITH_GECKO=... (or USE_GECKO I don't remember...)

I believe xulrunner has been added in the latest portsnap...
