Installing FireFox4 in Ubuntu


Posted on 23rd March 2011 by Krow in Browsers |Ubuntu

So now that Mozilla’s Firefox’s latest release has been released people who run Linux are wanting to get their hands on it. This is not a hard thing to do but still is confusing to some.

I hope that this post will help those who are searching for the help.

  1. Open a terminal and type the following commands
    • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get install firefox ubufox

That is it. Start FireFox as you normally do. It will then check that the “Add-Ons” that you have installed are compatible. I have about half a dozen there were not compatible but the ones that I needed were (i.e. FireBug, DummyLipsum Generator, WebDeveloper, Read It Later etc.)

Hope this help. Please let me know what you think of the new version. So far I am liking it.
