This should work:

sudo apt-get install firefox-3.0

Let us know how you make out!

http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/firefox should help you. I believe, but am not sure, that FF3 Beta 5 is the only version available in the repositories for 7.10, and then from the backports. Good luck regardless of how you proceed.

the info on psychocats site works fine, I used it a few weeks ago and I have had no problems at all.

only thing I would suggest is go into Synaptic and lock the current version of firefox so you don't get any update notifications for FF2

In Gutsy click System -> Administration -> Software Sources. Make sure on the Updates tab that Pre-released updates is selected (this enables gutsy-backports). Pop open a terminal and then do:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox-3.0
