    firefox 3.5 some questions

    since i saw the new release of firefox i decided to get the new one.
    so i opened the add/remove window and typed firefox 3.5,it gave me "A Web Browser 3.5".
    why there isn't a formal "firefox 3.5" version?
    when will ubuntu have the updates available for download?
    what and why should i install in order to have the latest updates of firefox 3.5?

    I think it is because they built the 3.5 version from source and did not use any supplied binaries from Mozilla. IIRC Mozilla doesn't allow you to use the name Firefox officially if you build from source.

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install firefox-3.5
    Doesn't get any easier than this.
