Asked by rosolen

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

My ubuntu 9.04 doesn't update the new firefox version that I installed by Terminal.
Still shows as 3.0.11 (pt-br), and the option to 'check for new firefox version' is disabled.

To get stable release of Firefox-3.5 you must add a repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list
 this repository

In short please open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type or copy and paste, one row a time then press enter:

echo 'deb' $(lsb_release -cs)' main' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

echo 'deb-src' $(lsb_release -cs)' main' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter

Then add this repository gpg key copy and paste this row into terminal and then press enter:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys A6DCF7707EBC211F

Then update your system type:

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

Hope this helps
