    Shiretoko

    I am trying to install latest Firefox 3.5 in jaunty, but it seem that it's harder than i though. Every possiple <snip> PPA repository install some 'Shiretoko' browser and i am unable to find anywhere properly branded Firefox..

    Is this so big problem for this distibution to have basic things done. Even damn openSUSE has One-Click install of proper Firefox 3.5 available from day One, but Ubuntu noooo, Ubuntu must simply **** off their users..

    If somebody has link to 'normal' repository without all that shire-crap-toko i am waiting.

    You will have to wait until a backport is done.

    All these are doing is putting Shiretoko on. As the OP said, these have suggested that the final of 3.5 would be installed, but both of your links and all how-tos I have tried is only and still loading Shiretoko

    Edit: It is possible that because I am 64 bit, the backport does not have the 64 bit as of yet

    Re: Shiretoko

    You can download the Firefox v3.5 (binaries) directly from the Mozilla site:

    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/firefox.html

    Unpack the archive in your home folder

    Code:
    cd ~
    mv /full-path-to-folder-where-Firefox-was-downloaded/firefox-3.5.tar.bz2 ./
    tar xvf firefox-3.5.tar.bz2
    Run it

    Code:
    firefox/firefox
    Plugins can be copied directly (or simlinked, depending on the plugin) to firefox/plugins.

    Follow this instead or try one of the other 2 methods described in the Installing Other Versions section of the Firefox optimization and troubleshooting thread
