I had Firefox installed from the mozilla's tar.bz and it worked as a default browser after I added /usr/bin/firefox to 'alternatives', other than that I can't remember what I did. Only now after an update (I blame Iceweasel) Firefox was gone, and I don't know how to recreate the previous setup as I do need FF as a default browser for other apps to use.
There's no /usr/bin/firefox now, it doesn't work when I just copy the supplied binary there. How should I proceed?
PS. I know iceweasel is rebranded FF, I just prefer the latter.

1. Extract firefox to $HOME
2. Ass this to your .bashrc: export PATH="$HOME/firefox:$PATH"
3. sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/x-www-browser x-www-browser /home/$YOURUSERNAME/firefox/firefox 100
4. Change the WEb Browser option or whatever it is in your openbox menu
Now IceTurtle can go L*onel R*tch*e itself.
Hmm i dont know how my link got messed up like that, but thanks for pointing that out.
