    Question firefox 3.5

    Whenever I try to update firefox to the latest version (3.5) by doing this:

    sudo apt-get install firefox-3.5

    It installs a browser called shiretoko. What's up with this. Its exactly like firefox but why is it a different program? Is there a way to just update firefox instead of installing a new browser?

    Please help me...I'm confused.

    Canonical (the company that owns Ubuntu) doesn't have rights for the "Firefox" name for 3.5. They need to get the rights from Mozilla before they can use the name :/
