Linux - Installing Firefox 3.6.x

October 2016


Mozilla does not provide deb packages for Firefox.

Ubuntuzilla package regroups the official binaries of Firefox, SeaMonkey and Thunderbird for installation and eay update.

You can therefore obtain the new official versions of Firefox via automatic updates (typically less than 24 hours).
These packages works for Ubuntu, and probably for most distributions based on Debian.

Add the repository

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver C1289A29  
sudo bash -c 'echo "deb all main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntuzilla.list'

Install Firefox

sudo apt-get update  
sudo apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build
