FireFox version

I want to upgrade to FireFox 3.0, I've did a 'mark all upgrades' in the Synaptic Package Manager but I don't get a update package for FireFox 3.0.

The istalled vesion ( is the same as mentioned by 'Latest availbale version'.

Also in FireFox the 'The check for updates' in the Help option is not valid.

The only way to get it upgraded to 3.0 is to do a manual install?

ff3 isn't considered an upgrade for ff2 yet, as many addons still don't work. So to install ff3, click here (apt:firefox-3.0) or install the 'firefox-3.0' package on synaptic.
