I'm using 64 bit Kubuntu Jaunty, with default repos, and aptitude install firefox-3.5 installed the proper version...
@chronon, thanz to share this with us. this give me some kind of hope in my mind after lots of frustration about new version of firefox in jaunty. i hope soon we get firefox 3.5 final version in official ubuntu 9.04 repo. & we can easily install & use it in ubuntu 9.04 jaunty.
now, i am waiting for the day in which we get ubuntu build of firefox 3.5 from official repo.
This is no good way dealing with things...
until linux in general get a proper package management we will not be taken seriously. This is too stupid reason for frustration.

i am also impatient, but what can i do???? i try many method to get it now but ended up with either shiretoko or lots of bugs & errors.
I have no qualms with this "improper package management" I can be patient and find the way that finally fits or use the Shiretoko which is working flawlessly, it is just blue and not called FF 3.5
To people who are complaining about how people here are not getting it the same time as Windows, Mac and other Linux distros, I thought it was logical to scrutinise and test programs before they went on the repos. Some people here obviously do not share my opinion, it seems. I haven't tried installing 3.5 on any of my Ubuntu installations yet, but for something to be put on the repos, it would be nice if it was assured to be stable on the distro in question...
