    hmm the link is to mozilla ftp site (not a ppa or repository), just source e.g. No built packages, no .debs.

    But I see what you are saying, development is continuing.

    Yes 3.7 wiil change to 4.0 at some point.
    But from the video presentation I think it will be later in the process, although I could be wrong.

    hmm re reading your post a couple of things occur to me.


    1. Installing Firefox 3.7 will not upgrade your Firefox 3.6.5.
    They are installed separately so you can run both.

    Firefox 3.7 can be found here:
    Check in Applications > Internet > Minefield 3.7 Web Browser

    2. Ensure you have added the correct PPA for 3.7

    Either
    Firefox-3.7 Lucid:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:silverwave/one-daily-a-month-1
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install firefox-3.7
    Or
    Firefox-3.7 Karmic:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository  ppa:silverwave/one-daily-a-month-3
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install firefox-3.7

    Arrow ubuntu-mozilla-daily 3.7 build issues

    Just a note as we haven't had any working builds of Firefox 3.7 since 2010/05/05


    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa/+packages?field.name_filter=firefox-3.7&field.status_filter=published&field.series_fil ter=lucid
    If you visit:
    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa/+packages?field.name_filter=&field.status_filter=p ublished&field.series_filter=lucid

    Then check Firefox3.7 you will see that it is not getting built, as it depends on xulrunner 1.9.3 which is failing.

    ________________________________________

    Firefox3.6.5 is being built fine and is up to date.
    The team have now created a new series for Lucid:
    firefox - 3.6.5~hg20100512r34186+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~lucid

    The package
    firefox - 3.6.5~hg20100512r34186+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1
    Is now now tracking the Maverick series.

    ________________________________________

    So...

    The options are:

    • That the FF3.7 daily is just having build issues.
      This happens from time to time, and they will be fixed in due time.
    • That this may involve a name change from 3.7 to 4.0.
      We will have to wait and see.

    I didn't mean a deb repository. But it is still a repository, isn't it?

    Arrow ubuntu-mozilla-daily build issues

    Just a note that ubuntu-mozilla-daily packages are building OK now for firefox-3.6.5 and firefox-3.7 (aka ff4).

    There had been a lot of build failures over a period of days, but it looks like they have sorted it out.
