    What's stopping you from going to mozilla.com and downloading Firefox 3.5 that way? Or downloading it through the repositories and using User Agent Switcher to have it identify itself to websites as Firefox?

    There's nothing stopping Ubuntu users from getting Firefox 3.5. Canonical just don't want to have to officially support two different major versions of some software. Unless you need Firefox 3.5 AND you take out an official support contract, what's the problem?
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    I don't really see what the big deal is. If it's not updated in the repository, there are other methods of installing 3.5, both easy and hard. Ubuntuzilla being one of the easy methods. I've been running 3.5 since near release with the help of ubuntuzilla.

    There are some reasons Ubuntu doesn't update Firefox in the repositories right away. If I recall, it has something to do with the security, stability, testing and Ubuntu not being a rolling release distro.
