    Well it looks like this could be very useful for a lot of people who want the latest official release but not a nightly build.

    Well this is great news!

    It will be interesting to see how the Ubuntu Mozilla Team respond

    Although Firefox-Next is a good start.

    Arrow One Daily A Month PPA's Updated: Firefox 4.0~rc1 (Mirroring Firefox-Next)

    firefox-4.0 - 4.0~rc1+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~mfn~lucid1

    Now that we have the Firefox-Next PPA the need for a "One Daily A Month" PPA for Firefox 4 is questionable...

    ...Short term I am just going to mirror Firefox-Next.

    Pity we don't have usage figures on our PPA's as this would allow me to see if I could close them down without affecting to many ppl.

    So to summarise:

    "One Daily A Week" PPA's for Firefox 4.0 are still going to be updated from the daily builds.

    "One Daily A Month" PPA's for Firefox 4.0 are going to mirror Firefox-Next.
    "One Daily A Month" PPA's for Firefox 3.6 are still going to be updated from the daily builds.

    From Ars:

    Arguably the biggest challenge for faster iteration is going to be the question of extension compatibility. The proposal document acknowledges that the problem exists but doesn't provide any suggested solutions. It's an area where Mozilla is going to have to do some serious problem-solving.
    Interesting.

    Arrow Archive: One Daily A Month PPA's

    This will be the landing page for anyone who needs the "One Daily A Month" instructions.

    One Daily A Month PPAs for Firefox 4.0 are now just mirrors of Firefox-Next

    One Daily A Month PPAs for Firefox 3.6 are the same as normal but moving details here as they will have diminishing relevance.

    [Update]

    After updating my add-ons I needed to uninstall/reinstall the Add-on Compatibility Reporter to get it working again.
