How should I go about getting Firefox 3.5.2 installed on Jaunty, are there any semi-official places I can pull a deb from?
Go to the Ubuntu documentation FirefoxNewVersion page.
When a new version of Firefox comes out, there is some delay until it can be downloaded and run. This page will explain how to install Firefox as soon as possible.
Follow the Instructions for the impatient that give
Jaunty and Karmic installation instructions for firefox 3.5.
Low difficulty, high safety: these packages are maintained and fully tested by the Ubuntu Project
yeah sudo apt-get firefox-3.5 seems to do the trick Jul 16, 2009 at 7:56
1You can also change /usr/bin/firefox to link to firefox-3.5 instead of firefox-3.0 by doing "sudo rm /usr/bin/firefox; sudo ln -s /usr/bin/firefox-3.5 /usr/bin/firefox", though updates to the firefox-3.0 package tend to undo the link. Aug 27, 2009 at 13:33
sudo apt-get install firefox-3.5
Firefox 3.5 codenamed "Shiretoko" is available on Ubuntu right now. It's unbranded and not final yet, but works ok for me.
The package name is "firefox-3.5", but it will install alongside firefox 3.0, not upgrade it.
