    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?

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

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

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

    does that mean my install of FF 3.5 is all OK, genuine and is as should be?

    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.

    If you've used the ubuntu-mozilla-daily PPA (http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozi...tu/jaunty/main) to install Firefox then you've most likely got a daily development build, not the final 3.5 version. I wouldn't recommend this.

    Either install Firefox 3.5 (branded as Shiretoko) from the Jaunty-proposed repository (it may be in main from today) or the branded Firefox from mozilla.org, or using Ubuntuzilla: http://ubuntumanual.org/posts/193/in...u-the-easy-way

    Thanks justin, that worked a treat. I'm back in my comfort zone again
    As I become more familiar with Ubuntu, I become less dependent on Windows.

    It's all very well saying that Shiretoko 3.5 is the same as Firefox 3.5 except when extensions refuse to install because they require Firefox 3.5.

    Do yourself a favour and stick to the old version or the Mozilla version.
