To those who replied saying they made a getmoz script too, I've had the same reaction, but contacted Phil (author of mozget) and we're going to work together in making this a lot more than a dirty hack. The project is also going to be renamed getmoz (I used that name too and we agreed it's less confusing).

The new version checks if the installation directory is writable and prompts for root password only if it's needed (not yet availiable for download).

We've got lots of great ideas on how to improve this and we're still wondering which way to go, so now is the time to join if you want a say in orientation the project will take (integration in mozilla, xpcshell, install as XPI, menu in preferences to configure, cron jobs that regularly check if a new build is availiable, perl, ect...) We're especially wondering how to make this cross platform.

Mail me (Eric) at <irise-lenoir@sympatico.ca> or Phil at <pcryer1017@yahoo.com> if you're interested in helping out.
