    The new improvements are already available in Firefox 6, 7 and 8.

    TBH its going to have to go some to beat "Tree Style Tabs" though.

    Just to underline how much cross site stuff this add-on protects you from, have a look at the screen shot!

    You are cutting out 99% of the risk with this one add-on.

    I am highlighting it here as having this type of add-on is *the* difference between Firefox and Chrome, and as expected it always gets bumped to work whenever a new Firefox comes out.

    Nice. Thanks for sharing. So far it seems to catch all the stuff Ghostery blocks and more.

    Arrow Looks like Chris is building a Firefox 6.0~b3 ATM

    6.0~b3+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.11.04.1~mfn1
    Not copied to my PPA's yet as Chris has Publishing disabled atm.

    So the polishing of Firefox 6.0 continues with this beta refresh from Mozilla... nice

    Interesting...

    Changelog

    firefox (6.0~b3+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.11.04.1~mfn1) natty; urgency=low * New upstream release from the beta channel (FIREFOX_6_0b3_BUILD2) * Unconditionally build with --disable-elf-hack. It's basically a noop on Ubuntu, as we don't get any of the nice space saving and startup time improvements that upstream builds get with it. Enabling it is problematic (it fails to build on all architectures in Ubuntu from Firefox 7 onwards, and is problematic on armel when building on older Ubuntu versions) - update debian/rules - update debian/mozconfig.in * Refresh debian/patches/reload-new-plugins.patch -- Chris Coulson <chris.coulson@canonical.com> Fri, 22 Jul 2011 17:29:01 +0100

    I can't use that version "firefox (6.0~b3+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.11.04.1~mfn1)" with Lucid Lynx.
    But I'm interested to find out what build options have been used.
    Please will you post the "Configure arguments" from about:buildconfig.

    You need to use this PPA for Lucid:

    Lucid
    https://launchpad.net/~silverwave/+archive/testing6
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:silverwave/testing6
    Update & Install

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install firefox
    I have just tested in a VM and it upgrades from FF3.6 fine.
