    I haven't used nightly since 19 or so , I just installed and really like it so far. It is speedy and the icons are much cleaner and not so cartoon like.

    After I get my college homework done I am going to give it a shot. I was unsure if I should but many of you seem to be reporting it being stable so I will give it a shot and let you all know how I feel about it.

    Usually it's stable, but I like a little breakage.

    I'll wait. Using Firefox beta is as adventurous as I'd care to be.

    Use ubuntu-support-status with caution.

    Well it seems pretty stable, I have been using it for about twenty four hours now and feels flawless. have not had a single hiccup, though I am not knocking on wood just to be safe. The only think I found funny is how it uses different icons. I have Windows loaded in a VM for school purposes and I use Pale Moon since I have had problems in the past with Firefox, the FF nightly icon looks like the Pale Moon icon just darker. Hopefully more people give this a try.

    I can't say I'm excited..Curious for sure. I prefer to wait till the big bugs are squished and Ubuntu sends the next version to me.

    I understand as I can see to some this may not fit there needs. Though for those of you who are wanting to give it a try.....
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk
    If you are worried about FF breaking this will essentially install the nightly FF as a separate application. So on the off chance "nightly" was to break where it was unable to be used or was just driving you nuts then you still have "Firefox" untouched on your machine to use.

    Does it create a separate profile in ~/.mozilla?
