  1. Unresolvable dependencies under Jaunty:

    firefox-3.5:
    Depends: xulrunner-1.9.1 but it is not going to be installed

    xulrunner-1.9.1:
    Depends: libnss3-1d (>=3.12.3) but 3.12.2~rc1-0ubuntu2 is to be installed

    I prefer to use Epihany instead of default Firefox version on Jaunty. It eats much less CPU. Renders font sizes correctly as set in preferences. Groups newly opened tabs with “Tab Groups” extension activated.
