    Arrow Firefox upgrade or update

    Have thought about upgrading or updating Firefox 3.6 to either ver 4 or 5

    I know there is no "check for update" in this version that I am using, I also know that some thing in the back ground has stopped working as a web site I check my ####### on, the sliding bars are no longer taking effect on the filters, (lucky Google chrome still does)

    Any and all advise is welcome

    Dave



    Should have said I am using ver 10, 64bit here of Ubuntu

    If you want to upgrade (Which I would highly recommend. You'll get TONS of features and more speed.), run this in terminal and you'll be upgraded to Firefox 5:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install firefox

    That's odd. Try running each command individually:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firefox

    I use "&&" in between each command. Would that have made a difference?

    Re: Firefox upgrade or update

    Yeah probably. I just copied it from someplace in this format:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install firefox
    It didn't copy in that format and I forgot to change it. But yes, && would work as well.
