If you refer to version 3.0.1 it should be available when you next update apt.

He is probably referring to 3.1 which is still in Alpha stage of testing. For something so early in testing stages I highly recommend getting it directly from Mozilla.

Alpha builds won't be in the repos.

Giving software out in the repos means it would automatically upgrade everyone to the latest.

Go to Mozilla's site and have a looksies around.

I think it's mentioned in the second post that there is a PPA with firefox 3.1 around.

I checked that PPA and it only contains Firefox 3.0.4, not Firefox 3.1. Anywhere else to try?

Strange, I tried it on my laptop yesterday and it didn't show up. Today on my desktop, it does appear, and it installs, and runs very well. Thanks!

You can download it direct from mozilla. Just unpack it in a directory in /home and make a launcher on the desktop to it.

Dont forget it's still beta.

[edit]
Two precautions.

I've tried it and it's terribly unstable!

3.06 is much, much better!

Personally, I like it a lot but don't use it for my day-to-day browsing. Remember, it's only the third beta. It's not a release candidate yet!

What's so unstable about it though? I'm sure the Firefox developers would like to know.

Thanks for this. It's awesome. Just what I've been looking for.

Really? I'm using 3.2 happily and am yet to notice any crashes.

I've been using 3.1 for a few months now. It was a bit unstable at the start but the latest packages have been very reliable.

try Minefield (3.2)(nightly)! better than Shiretoko (3.1)(nightly) for a mile!
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/
recommended!

I'd actually prefer using the PPA. It updates daily, just a little slower than Mozilla, but you get automated upgrades via apt.

I prefer to keep installed "regular" FF in place and just use Minefield from a directory in ~. that way they share history, settings etc and I have a backup ... ;) if I get angry with Minefield just rm will do ... ;) De gustibus non est disputandum.

Ah yes, that's true. the ones from PPA create a new directory in ~/.mozilla.

Looks nice enough but my bank insists I use a stable browser to check my account and konqueror doesn't count >_>

I just have minefield in my home directory

Heheh I don't think that Minefield really counts as a stable browser does it? =P

update manager in Gutsy lists that there are update for firefox 3.0 but will not let me check the boxes. What am I doing wrong?

In a terminal (Application > Accessories > Terminal), what does this command produce?

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude upgrade

I ran it and it upgraded flashplugin-nonfree. I ran it again and it mentioned "The following packages have been kept back: firefox-3.0 firefox-3.0-gnome-support"

I am sure, yes, there is. Firefox 3.1 has a repository.
