I saw this when looking around for how to upgrade Firefox to the latest ---
After reading about it and checking for problems associated with it, I
downloaded Ubuntuzilla and used it to install the latest Firefox.
NO PROBLEM for me.
Here are the steps I took:
Installed the dependencies
sudo apt-get install libnotify-bin
Downloaded Ubuntuzilla to desktop
Download Ubuntuzilla: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ubuntuzill...86.deb/download
Double clicked on the file to install
Install Firefox 3.6 in Ubuntu using Ubuntuzilla
You will be asked questions during install such as language (14 for US English)
and for your password.
Ubuntuzilla will also notify you when a new Firefox update or upgrade becomes
available if you allow it to.
From what I have read Ubuntuzilla works well in Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10.
If you have another distro other than those two, I suggest you read the
comments here: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ubun...ge#Installation
NOTE: Always back up your Firefox profile before upgrading.
Ubuntuzilla is easily uninstalled and allows you to rollback to previous
ubuntuzilla.py -a remove -p firefox
The above command will restore your old version of Firefox, with all its settings.
