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

    THIS TUTORIAL IS OUTDATED

    Install the latest: Beta or Nightly builds of Firefox (firefox 12.0~b2 or firefox-trunk 14.0a1).
    A new command makes it easy to add a PPA repository and its key, all at once.

    Add a Firefox 12.0 Beta PPA
    I think that the Beta's represent the best reward (in running the latest Firefox) for the least risk (very stable and polished).

    Just a note now that I see how the new rapid release for Firefox is actually working in practice...

    • My PPA's will be updated to the latest Beta's as they come out.


    • At the end of the cycle they will be updated to the latest firefox.

    If you add a Beta PPA from the list below, you will always have the latest FF10, FF11 etc., as soon as they are available.

    The latest firefox Beta - No other packages.
    Copied from firefox-next, Ubuntu Security Proposed & Ubuntu Mozilla Security.
    Warning! I am impatient and I copy packages before they have been fully tested.
    I even copy packages when status reads "Publishing has been disabled for this archive".
    I can do this in good conscience as these ppa's are for my personal use, although I have no problem with others using them.

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk
    Low safety, daily packages have not undergone any quality assurance.
    Sometimes very safe but sometimes may not work at all.
    One potential downside of using ubuntu-mozilla-daily is the number of updates offered.
    Another is that packages other than Firefox are present in the PPA.

    The "add-apt-repository" command.
    Creates the file "ubuntu-mozilla-daily-ppa-lucid.list" in the folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d

    Adds the key for the ppa.
    The file ubuntu-mozilla-daily-ppa-lucid.list contains the following line:
    deb http ://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

    Modified your title a bit; this is mainly for Karmic and below (future-proofing; possibly Lucid in the future). Short, but gets the job done. Thanks for your contribution to Tutorials & Tips!

    I am using the development edition of Xubuntu 10.04 Alpha 1 and I added this to my repository in Software Sources.

    http:// ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

    And I am now using Firefox 3.7 pre-Alpha 1 as my browser

    Yep this is what is available in Karmic today:

    firefox-3.5 3.5.7~hg20091209r26657+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~karmic Fabien Tassin (2009-12-10)
    firefox-3.6 3.6~b6~hg20091212r33356+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~karmic Fabien Tassin (18 hours ago)
    firefox-3.7 3.7~a1~hg20091213r35651+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~karmic Fabien Tassin (18 hours ago)
    The Firefox 3.6~b6 Beta is pretty stable at this stage but I wouldn't want to risk a 3.7 Alpha1.

    Shiretoko = FF3.5
    Namoroka = FF3.6

    You can only use the Firefox Name and Logo if its an official Mozilla build or they have signed off on it.


    I had a look here:
    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa
    The latest offerings in the ppa are...
    firefox-3.5 3.5.8~hg20091226r26705+nobinonly-0ubuntu2~umd1~karmic Fabien Tassin (2009-12-27)
    and
    firefox-3.6 3.6~b6~hg20091228r33441+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~karmic Fabien Tassin (19 hours ago)


    Check in Synaptic Package Manager and see which version you have of FF3.5, I would bet you have:
    3.5.8~hg20091226r26705+nobinonly-0ubuntu2~umd1~karmic

    If so you have updated FF3.5 as well as FF3.6.

    Note:
    I have updated the How-to regarding the Update Manager and an explanation of how FF3.6 daily is named "Namoroka".

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

    Already added this repo. My intention is to use thunderbird from here, but keep firefox in sync with current ubuntu repos. If i hold firefox, i don't get any update...is i do and update i get the firefox from this ppa.
    Is there any way to do this? I mean thunderbird from ppa and firefox from official repos?

    Cheers.
