    Latest version of Firefox and Thunderbird

    Hi,

    Where can i find the PPA for the latest stable versions of Thunderbird and Firefox? I'm running Ubuntu10.04.3 32-bit.
    Is it correct that the latest version is version 7 for both programs?

    Many thanks!

    I've asked my very dear friend Google and he replied with this: https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/thunderbird-stable for the official PPA for Thunderbird. So what wrong with this PPA??

    The creator of the PPA had used the stop publishing option for some reason , but the option was removed and the PPA was updated 9 minutes ago .
    Infinite diversity in infinite combination.

    But i can use the PPA of Launchpad also for both programs? There's no difference between the "official" PPA and the PPA of ricotz?

    For Firefox see the Firefox 7 & Beyond Mega Thread.

    The Mozilla team also have a PPA for Thunderbird.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable
