    Question Firefox 3.5 from Jaunty Repos. Is it well mantained?

    Thread title basically says it all.

    I finally decided to upgrade from Firefox 3.0 to 3.5, but I noticed that Canonical doesn't provide updates for 3.5 and that it is all community driven/updated. How well is this package maintained? Am I better off sticking with 3.0 or should I upgrade to 3.5?

    Thanks!

    (Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I didn't really know where to put it!)
    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it! Seriously. Don't.

    It just got updated today (along with FF 3.0), what makes you think any package is not maintained?

    Thanks for the info guys! I installed the Firefox 3.5 package and other corresponding packages, and after a little work to get it re-branded from Shiretoko, all seems to be running well.

    I just have one more question: Do you think it is safe to remove the Firefox 3.0 packages from my system, or is it suggested that I keep them there just in case?

    Many thanks again!

    Nah, you can just remove your 3.0 packages if you want, you won't be using them side-by-side anyhow. Unless you're sentimental and want to keep your 3.0 there because you've surfed the web together for so long...
