    Get firefox to update to 3.0

    I've actually been using Ubuntu for a while, but I can't seem to get this to work. I've got firefox 3.0 beta 5, but I'm reasonably sure that it shouldn't be a beta anymore. I've run updates and tried it through synaptec which seems to tell me that maybe I really am on the latest version.

    apt-get install firefox doesn't do anything but tell me I'm on the latest version, so perhaps I am just assuming that it shouldn't be a beta, but who knows.

    You must be using hardy to have FF3 beta5. Either
    sudo apt-get update
    or System --> Administration --> Update manager and click on check. You are correct, FF3 final release came out about a week ago. There have been a number of other updates as well over the week.

    To check your version of Firefox, Run Firefox go to help and click 'About Mozilla Firefox'

    This happened to me also. Don't know if it is for the same reason.

    I fixed it by going to System>Administration>Software Sources. In the "Download from:" option, select Server for United States or Main Server. Close and let it Reload the repository.

    I used to select a server that was close. However, I think the server I selected wasn't updated. Selecting Server for United States fixed it for me. Hope it helps.
