Upgrading from Firefox 3.6.10 to Firefox 4.0.1 in Ubuntu Maverick

Alright, getting a little bit cooked up from trying to install cookie managers in Firefox 3.6.10 has now gotten me into really bad shape.  I couldn’t possibly imagine the number of possibilities Karmetasploit could do and I must get it working!  Since the cookie managers in Firefox extension kept reporting messages like “you can’t install this extension on your version” and also “we have trouble downloading from the server”, my only option was either (1.) to run a VirtualBox executing Windows Firefox since the configuration was easier or (2.) install the latest Firefox!  Let us jump straight to the point!

Creating database user for postgresql in Metasploit

I’m sure many of you would have trouble going through this stage if you are trying to setup the database within Metasploit.  I’m definitely one of them and I had trouble with it all the while until today, I’m not entirely sure whether the solution I’m giving is correct but I believe it should so I’m writing this quickly and will alter it when I’m done!
