Where is Firefox 38.0.1 ?!

Asked by Paul Littlefield on 2015-06-02

Can anyone tell me what the delay is for version 38.0.1 in Trusty? It's been over 2 weeks now and I am suffering from one of the listed fixed bugs. I don't want to and shouldn't have to go "manual" to get it, and I'd like to keep using Firefox. Thanks.

I suggest that you create a bug report.

If you need a quick workaround, you could try installing a newer version from a PPA, e.g. 39.0~xxx from https://launchpad.net/~ricotz/+archive/ubuntu/mozilla

It will come. Firefox is one of the apps that is being kept bang up to date.

Looking at Chris Coulson's comment in Bug #1461113 it seems that the 38.0.1 update will not make it into the standard Ubuntu repositories. I assume that you have to wait for the 39.* release, or (at least temporarily) use a PPA or manual build.

Can you help with this problem?
