    Shiretoko

    I am trying to install latest Firefox 3.5 in jaunty, but it seem that it's harder than i though. Every possiple <snip> PPA repository install some 'Shiretoko' browser and i am unable to find anywhere properly branded Firefox..

    Is this so big problem for this distibution to have basic things done. Even damn openSUSE has One-Click install of proper Firefox 3.5 available from day One, but Ubuntu noooo, Ubuntu must simply **** off their users..

    If somebody has link to 'normal' repository without all that shire-crap-toko i am waiting.

    You will have to wait until a backport is done.

    All these are doing is putting Shiretoko on. As the OP said, these have suggested that the final of 3.5 would be installed, but both of your links and all how-tos I have tried is only and still loading Shiretoko

    Edit: It is possible that because I am 64 bit, the backport does not have the 64 bit as of yet

    Re: Shiretoko

    i think ubuntu is a good distro, but, sometimes it really make us frustrated. i still using firefox 3.0.11 in ubuntu 9.04 becoz there is no update of firefox 3.5 in official repo still & even ubuntu-mozilla-daily build team repo. (it still installs minefield 3.5 browser, not firefox 3.5 final)...but, my frnds using other distros like openSUSE or Fedora already get latest firefox 3.5.
    this matter really making me unhappy. i want to use firefox 3.5 final version in ubuntu 9.04....i love ubuntu, but, it should concern about such kind of issues....its not a good exeperience for us to wait longer for a new version when other people already using new version.

    Re: Shiretoko

    You could always download the source code and install it that way... so stop complaining if the officially labels verison is not in the repos, testing takes time!

    Shiretoko is the code name for Firefox 3.5, so dont worry it works. Until a proper backport is completed your stuck with the Shiretoko name, which is nothing to worry about... heck I'm on Arch Linux and it never uses the Firefox name.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.
