    Yes, and I've already said "Thank You". Ranting? Apparently wanting a updated browser on a stable system is a LTS sin.

    I don't know why you think Firefox is a third party browser to Ubuntu. It's the default browser, and is rather tightly integrated with the desktop.
    How is the browser that is shipped with Ubuntu tightly integrated? Two different companies am I right? Does anybody remember how IE6 and XP was integrated and what security risk it imposed on that platform? That is called integration. The browser was written by the same company that wrote OS. IE6 where so integrated that you could not remove it because it was truly part of the system.

    Look at all the chaos that emerges if you challenge any type of thinking other than what you are told on this forum.

    Just wanted a simple answer, which I got from typhoon_tip, thanks again.
    Actually, you know what I give up. I will go back to windows (dual monitor support, oh god how did they ever figure that out). And I can have an updated browser experience.

    Please read Firefox 8 & Beyond Mega Thread. It explains everything.

    Well, I would say it not tightly integrated with the desktop.
    You can easily remove the firefox folder/content and it will not brake anything well.. maybe the yelp if you are really unlucky.

    It is not a "sin." It's an easy 30-second procedure to install the browser of your choice. Which you have already done, right? You have the browser you want, situation Solved?

    10.04 = April 2010. Firefox 3.6 was the current version of Firefox in April 2010 when Lucid was released. I don't know why this fact offends you so...

    I have been having trouble lately with 10.04 FireFox 3.6 loading pages slowly or freeze for about 5 seconds then go back to normal.

    Upgraded to 7.01 using the instruction from this website:
    http://palupix.blogspot.com/2011/10/...untu-1004.html

    It was so easy and FireFox 7 works great, no more problems.
