Upgrade to Firefox 3.5RC2

Update:There has been a slight misunderstanding. If you have already installed Firefox 3.5 beta, simply do the following upgradation.

  • sudo apt-get update 
  • sudo apt-get upgrade

Install Firefox 3.5RC2

Update: If you dont have an installed verion of firefox 3.5, you need to install it altogether. Upgradation of existing stable version of Firefox wont work. If you don’t want that, wait for the official release of Firefox 3.5. Otherwise, do

  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install firefox-3.5

I still strongly recommend to wait until the official firefox 3.5 release. This is strictly for adventurers ūüėČ
