    where is my Firefox 3.5? I now have Shiretoko 3.5

    I searched and followed a few howto's yesterday, on installing Firefox 3.5 and downloading from repos via synaptic.

    I added the new additions to the 'third party software' sources:

    and the same for source, also I added the required 'key'.

    All downloaded and installed, and I removed the old Firefox via Synaptic too.

    What is disconcerting to me is that now my browser is called 'Shiretoko' and my firefox icon is now blue instead of orange.

    Is this the only way to properly install Firefox 3.5?

    how can I have synaptic installed Firefox 3.5, be labelled Firefox and have the orange icon back?

    CHOICE IS YOURS.

    If I'm not wrong, Debian's Firefox is called Shiretoko ( or something very similar ) too !

    That's one good thing about a Windows platform, you can just download, double-click the '.exe' file, and that's it.

    OK, guys, thanks for your advice.

    You must be talking about Iceweasel...
    It is not even similar to what you said, but that is ok.


    If it is not with the regular updates from your distribution, why bother trying to upgrade the browser?

    If you just want the latest and greatest software, get on the developer team and help build the next versions.

    I have installed Firefox 3.5 on Ubuntu 9.04 using the instructions set out on this website; http://www.kabatology.com/07/01/a-si...3-5-on-ubuntu/

    It work's perfectly, so feel free to give it a go. as Firefox 3.5 is faster than previous with new enhancements.

    That is firefox 3.5. I wouldn`t worry about it.

    If you really don`t like it that way use this.
