    Post One Nightly A Month PPA's Holding Page

    With the new Firefox Beta PPA's now available there is less of a need for the Monthly PPA's.
    So the main page will link here allowing me to streamline the First Post instructions.

    Arrow Is it a mistake calling Firefox Aurora and Firefox Beta Packages "firefox"?

    Firefox Beta
    Firefox Aurora
    Firefox Nightly

    As the Nightly packages are not called firefox, rather firefox-trunk, they can be run side-by-side with firefox.

    I think this this is highly desirable and very useful.

    The Firefox Beta Channel is working great but it does replace your existing firefox

    The same is true for Firefox Aurora Channel

    It seems a real shame tbh.

    I wonder if the naming of the packages in the other channels could be changed to follow that of the Nightly Channel?

    e.g.

    Firefox Beta Channel:
    firefox-beta

    Firefox Aurora Channel:
    firefox-aurora

    hmmm...

    I disagree. I think it is great that firefox-next replaces your existing firefox. This way, there is no more confusion with cloned profiles and customized launchers. It is easier for new users to adopt it.

    Re: Install The Newest Firefox ppa with command "add-apt-repository" (9.10 & above)

    Indeed, lovinglinux is right.

    Firstly, the beta packages are where we test packages that are eventually going to end up in the distro. Making them parallel installable introduces several problems:
    1. The packaging is totally different, so they are completely useless for testing future distro upgrades. The beta packages should be production quality packages
    2. They rely on ugly hacks to make them fully parallel installable (ie, changing the profile location)
    3. We can't distribute them with the official branding turned on (because of reason 2


    The aurora package isn't parallel installable because it makes it impossible for people to swap between channels, for the reason that lovinglinux mentioned. In addition to this, I wanted to hook the channel switcher UI in to the package manager at some point (that was, until Mozilla disabled the UI). Also, having them all parallel installable means maintaining 4 lots of packaging, which is a total headache.

    There is a genuine use-case for people wanting to test nightly builds alongside a more stable version (which is what I do), and this is why the nightly build is parallel installable.

    We're not going to change the aurora or beta package to be parallel installable.

    Also, your beta packages are out-of-date already. The latest beta fixes a critical security issue, so distributing out-of-date packages (with my name on too!) is quite irresponsible. Please fix that. People should be running the latest beta anyway, there is no point in people testing out-of-date builds.
