Install Firefox 3.6 Pre Beta in Ubuntu Karmic in 2 steps


Firefox 3.6 has already reached the pre beta releases. And those who can't wait to give this all new Firefox a try in Ubuntu, this is what you need to do.

Update: Firefox 3.6 final is released. Install Firefox 3.6 in Ubuntu using Ubuntuzilla.


Ubuntu Karmic Users
  • Ubuntu Karmic users, this is all you need to do.
  • First of all, you need to add the mozilla-daily PPA. Goto Terminal and copy-paste the following.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily
  • Done.
Now Install Firefox 3.6 in Ubuntu
  • Again, do the following in Terminal.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox-3.6
  • Done. 
Let me remind you, Firefox 3.6 is still in its pre beta stages and should contain a lot of bugs. But I guess, it does worth a try.
