Mozilla Firefox, included in SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, is a convenient, easy-to-use Linux web browser that is sponsored by the Mozilla Foundation. To date, it has been downloaded over 500 million times and comes with advanced features like integrated search toolbars and tabbed browsing. However, its key advantages over other browsers like Internet Explorer are its security and privacy tools, including popup blocking and selective image and cookie loading. Ease of use, stability, and security have quickly made Mozilla Firefox the favorite of USA Today, Forbes magazine and the Wall Street Journal's Walter Mossberg.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop Enhancements
Firefox on SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop includes a Moonlight plug-in developed by Novell. Moonlight is a Silverlight-compatible plug-in based on the Mono open source project (www.mono-project.com) for accessing Silverlight rich interactive applications on Linux. This gives you access to web content previously only available to users on Windows, and also includes support for Windows Media Audio (wma) and Windows Media Video (wmv) files.
Stop annoying popup ads in their tracks with Firefox's built in popup blocker.
View more than one web page in a single window with this time-saving feature. Open links in the background so that they're ready for viewing when you're ready to read them.
Privacy and Security
Built with your security in mind, Firefox keeps your computer safe from malicious spyware by not loading harmful ActiveX controls. A comprehensive set of privacy tools keeps your online activity your business.
Google Search is built right into the toolbar, along with a plethora of other search tools including Keywords and the new find toolbar (which finds information as you type and eliminates the annoying window that always seems to be in your way).
Files you download are automatically saved to your desktop so they're easy to find. Fewer prompts mean files download quicker.
Fits Like a Glove
Simple and intuitive, yet fully featured, Firefox has all the functions you're used to–Bookmarks, History and Full Screen–as well as Text Zooming, which makes pages with small text easier to read.

Customize your toolbars to add additional buttons, install new extensions that add new features, add new themes to browse with style, and use the adaptive search system to allow you to search an infinite number of engines. Firefox is as big or small as you want.
