    Not for me it doesn't and I've just this moment updated to Beta 5.

    Ignore me, I had the Feedback button disabled and removed from view.

    Thanks for the link. Sweet. I actually like the development theme and the name namaroka.

    So, when the final release comes out if I disable the daily built ppa and enable the ubuntu firefox stable ppa which version would get updated, the beta version or the 3.6 with development addons, or neither and that I have to install ff4 stable afresh?

    This is a test installation of Lucid on an external drive so I am not worried about playing fast and loose, in my working installation I use the stable built ppa, or "security" as it is called before the final release of ff4.

    I'm using it now. The only way I can start the app is through the termianal with /usr/bin/firefox-4.0.

    I'm not sure, because currently Firefox 4 is installed separately. Nevertheless, the stable ppa page has a notice about Firefox 4, so I guess you will be able to upgrade from 3.6 to 4 with the stable ppa, once Firefox 4 final version is released. When that happens, remember that you are currently using a copy of your 3.6 profile, located on a different folder.

    That's normal. You can also start it from the Internet menu. It should be listed as "Mozilla Developer Preview Browser" or something like that.

    That is a problem. You can try to re-install Firefox 4 to see if the launcher appears or create a launcher in the menu manually.
