firefox 3.5 final


To install the latest Firefox 3.5 (final) in Ubuntu, open a terminal and:
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list"
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list"
Then add the Launchpad PPA GPG key:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 247510BE
Or use the automatic Launchpad PPA script to add the GPG key.

And finally, install Firefox 3.5 final:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox-3.5

If you already have a version of Firefox 3.5 installed from a repo:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

I have two suggestion:
-you may want to try out Switftox which is an improved build of Firefox which also reached version 3.5 (actually it's updated just days after Firefox is) and runs a lot faster and it even uses your Firefox profile so you'll still have all your addons and customizations.
-how to make Firefox extensions work with the latest Firefox 3.5

Update: you can now install Firefox 3.6 in Ubuntu from the same repository.
