    Unfortunately, it's not in the repositories yet, and FireFox's help->check for updates is greyed out; apparently in ubuntu the acceptable method is to upgrade through the update manger only..

    I hope it's better than the one shipped with Ubuntu 8.04. It doesn't even start the default FF3.0B5! It just sits there "Starting Firefox", the text disappears and nothing happens. When I install Firefox 2 I can only start it as root...

    For that, I am tempted to "downgrade" back to 7.10 as UB804 has given me nothing but headaches. Certainly not something that I would dare to call a release

    Firefox in Ubuntu has always been this way. The update button is always gray. Firefox updates show up as new update notification once it has been added to the repositories. It takes a day or two or three at the most. And if you can't wait, you can always remove the installed FF3 and get RC1 from Mozilla's website (in reverse order, of course).

    Back in beta, Hardy always got FF3 updates within a week. I'll wait.
