    I looked through this thread, but didn't see anything (or missed it if it was there).
    Glad that you figured it out.

    Which Ubuntu version you are using?

    The firefox-stable ppa has builds only for maverick and lucid.The firefox-next has builds for maverick, lucid and karmic.

    If you are using an older version of Ubuntu, then download FF 4 from Mozilla and install it manually. See instructions on my web site:

    Chrome does that, but is the only application I have installed which does not behave correctly. I use KDE, which has lots of cool features related to window management, but with Chrome is a complete mess. For instance, I can't double-click on the title bar to collapse the window. It maximizes instead, which is really annoying. So in my opinion, the decision of Mozilla to not mess with the window title bar was a good one.

    I installed Firefox 4.0 with the direction at the begining of this thread.

    I went to:
    http://bodybrowser.googlelabs.com/

    I got an error message stating that I needed a webgl enabled browser. I looked up "webgl" in my about:config, all settings for that were set to true.

    I downloaded chrome and got the same error message.

    I saw on the internet that I might need new video drivers or that my video card might not be good enough.

    The stats about my video card are listed above. Can it be made to work with webgl and Firefox 4? If so, how?

    Thanks much in advance
    Your video card is really old and a low-end model, with not many features. It is probably not supported by the latest video drivers.

    Type about:support in the address bar, then look for the "User Agent" string. If it says is "Linux i686", then you have 32bit. If it says "Linux x86_64", then is 64bit.

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    Keep in mind the version available from Firefox main site is for 32bit
    A 64 bit version of Firefox is available from Mozilla's website but not easy to to find.

    I have followed the instructions to install Firefox 4 stable in Ubuntu 10.10 and it says it's installed, but when I check my version, its still Firefox 3.51

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    I have upgraded to FF4. However, I would also like to re-install 3.6 alongside 4, as some plugins in 3.6 aren't compatible with 4 yet. How do I do this? I downloaded the 3.6 package but Synaptics only sees the currently installed 4.0.

    Using this guide.. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1708905 I was able to achieve getting FF4, but unlike in Windows, the home button is way at the far right..is this done by design in Ubuntu, and would the orta theme have something to do with it?

    You can right click anywhere at the top and select "customize" to move the home button. Actually I think you can move/add/delete just about any of the buttons.
    Gotta love the "pin tabs" function too!

    The easiest way to Upgrade Firefox 4 in Ubuntu 10.04 & 10.10

    Since Firefox 4 has already been released, guys who are using Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10 may desire to upgrade Firefox 3.6 to the latest version. Here is the easiest method ever on the earth.
    Just copy the following command and paste it on the terminal of Ubuntu (Press the keyboard: Ctrl+Alt+T, or click Applications > Terminal).
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    The above command is to add Mozilla team repository, update repository list and upgrade Firefox, entering your password when asked.
    Enjoy the latest Firefox.
