Install Firefox 3.6 In Ubuntu

Mozilla released Firefox 3.6 few days ago. It is fast to start and fast to do js things. More in release notes here.

Installing Firefox 3.6 is same as installing Thunderbird 3 which I have already covered here.

I'll just copy pate those things here. So to update your Firefox follow the steps below:

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Add Mozilla's sources by:
    • For Karmic:
      • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
    • For version older than Karmic:
      • echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu ubuntu_version main' | sudo tee -a  /etc/apt/sources.list
        sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 247510BE
  3. sudo aptitude update
  4. sudo aptitude install firefox-3.6 firefox-3.6-gnome-support firefox-3.6-branding
  5. sudo aptitude safe-upgrade (just in case you've missed anything)
  6. sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-mozilla-daily-ppa-karmic.list (Otherwise your update manager will show new updates each day)
  7. sudo aptitude update
