    As you can see the RC1 trumps the daily build.

    2 days to go for the full release

    [Update]

    After updating my add-ons I needed to uninstall/reinstall the Add-on Compatibility Reporter to get it working again.
    Issues with "Add-on Compatibility Reporter" forgetting it should be enabled after a reboot...

    Don't have the time to troubleshoot so:

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

    Disabled the Firefox-next PPA in Software Sources.

    Installed Firefox-4.0 from my One Daily A Week PPA.

    4.0~b13~hg20110319r63446+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~lucid

    Lots of things going on. The new ppa, Ubuntuzilla ceasing operations and all that stuff you have been posting.

    I also have decided to cease the development of FoxTester. Now I am recommending the new Mozilla's profile Manager for managing multiple versions and profiles.

    Very true!

    The new ppa,
    Yeah long overdue IMHO

    Ubuntuzilla ceasing operations
    Wow I missed that, but it makes sense as its really not needed any more.

    and all that stuff you have been posting.
    Yes Firefox-Next was just what I wanted (easy installs of Firefox betas, RC's etc., for all Ubuntu users).
    Particularly as Mozilla are upping the tempo of releases.
    Its going to pretty much match what I was trying to accomplish with my One Daily A Month PPA's.

    One less thing I need to worry about (Although it did necessitate a major rewrite of the How to).

    I also have decided to cease the development of FoxTester. Now I am recommending the new Mozilla's profile Manager for managing multiple versions and profiles.
    Oh I will have to have a look into it, thanks for the tip.

    I am not experiencing such issue [re Add-on Compatibility Reporter].
    Good! that means its probably either my profile or on of my many add-ons

    Although... everything works with the daily I swapped the RC1 out for... hmm interesting!

    Here is the link:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Profile_Manager

    Is pretty good and can also do profile backups.

    Warning!

    Just tested and bear in mind that this will upgrade your Firefox 3.6 to 4.0...


    That is you will no longer have access to Firefox 3.6!

    If you need to undo the upgrade and put Firefox 3.6 back as it was:

    (Hopefully you have a backup of your Firefox folder )

    Uninstall Firefox from Package Manager.
    1. Optional: Replace you Firefox folder with your saved backup copy.
    2. In Software sources remove the entry for Firefox-stable.
    3. Via Package Manager install Firefox. (Version should be 3.6)

    You are now sorted!

    Re: Firefox-Stable from the Mozilla Team (Firefox 4.0)

    Sweet! I was really excited about fx4 when I put the RC on my Win7 netbook, but now that I'm running Ubuntu it's running even better. Thanks for posting the instructions on how to get the stable update. Now, is there an easy way to uninstall the Minefield developer preview version?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Uninstall firefox-4.0
    Then remove firefox-next from your "Software Sources"

    That should do it as the firefox-stable package is "firefox".

    Cheers.
