    Arrow Some other examples of "add-apt-repository" for ppl who skip to the end ;)

    Other "add-apt-repository" examples:
    1.
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa
    2.
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
    3. Gain access to the latest chromium-daily ppa.
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chromium-daily
    Looking at the chromium-daily example above, it may be that the "/ppa" at the end of the other examples is not required

    But as there is no Man page or Help who knows!

    [EDIT]
    Tested and confirmed, I have updated the command in the How-to
    .
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security
    Successful as below:

    well, fwiw, ff 3.5.7 was released today, and is already present in the ubuntuzilla repository. let's see how long it takes to percolate to the repos for the supported ubuntu releases...

    great minds think alike:

    Firefox security and stability update for version 3.5.7 and 3.0.17 available for download

    And this is a fair test as it is a Security Update - so it is important.

    Re: Install The Newest Firefox ppa with command "add-apt-repository" (9.10 & above)

    let's wait, but in the meantime here's some data about earlier firefox releases:

    firefox 3.5.6, released on December 15, 2009:
    the package made it into the karmic repository on 18-Dec-2009

    3.5.5, and 3.5.4 did not make it into the karmic repository at all, it seems

    3.5.3 was released on September 9, 2009, before karmic was released. so looking at the jaunty repository, the file is dated October 20, 2009. (that's quite a long wait... guess they were waiting for karmic?)

    at any rate, let's see how it goes with 3.5.7.

    Seamonkey 2.0.2 is slated for release on january 13, but seeing as how karmic and all previous releases are still on seamonkey1 in the repos, it's never going to make it in...

    btw: release date data from https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases
    package date data from packages.ubuntu.com

    I would expect a security update to be released within a week, but even then its urgency depends on the seriousness of the exploit.

    Also there has to be _by definition_ some time for the new package to be tested, with a reasonable number of testers, to have assurance that it will not break any other software. In the windows enterprise world the turnaround from the ms updates to deployment is 2-4weeks, sometimes a lot longer (and you pay big bucks for it). Also as my OS is Linux I am not really sweating it, as its damn secure by default and not targeted by the huge majority of malware (if at all). Coming from windows a lot of first time users are jumpy about updating their browser which is understandable

    Users, who decide that partial quality assurance is sufficient, can get the updates earlier by using the security ppa (and actually helping by being testers and reporting bugs).

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security
    Medium safety, halfway through the quality-assurance process.
    Bugs are rare but no guarantees are given.

    OK as above I added the
    ubuntu-mozilla-security PPA and then ran "Update Manager"
    I received the notification below advising me that 3.5.7 was available.

    Changes for the versions:
    3.5.6+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.10.1
    3.5.7+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.10.1

    I proceeded with the update and I now have Firefox~3.5.7

    Gain access to the latest ubuntu-mozilla-daily ppa.
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily
    Low safety, daily packages have not undergone any quality assurance.
    Sometimes very safe but sometimes may not work at all
    .

    Checked "Update Manager" and this is what is reported:

    Changes for the versions:
    3.6~b6~hg20100104r33473+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~karmic
    3.6~hg20100107r33493+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~karmic

    So, ff 3.5.7 made it into the karmic repo today. that makes 3 days since mozilla release.

    Well, not too bad - before, it used to be at least a week.
