A listing of random software, tips, tweaks, hacks, and tutorials I made for Ubuntu

Firefox and Thunderbird 5, 6, 7 and 8!

If you ever wanted to be up to date with the world’s leading Internet software provider, here are some PPAs you can install:

All of the instructions below are Terminal commands.

  1. Firefox
    • 5.0 (Stable):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    • 6.0 (Beta):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    • 7.0 (Aurora):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    • 8.0 (Nightly):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk
  2. Thunderbird
    • 5.0 (Stable):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    • 6.0 (Beta):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-next
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    • 7.0 (Aurora):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/thunderbird-aurora
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    • 8.0 (Nightly):
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install thunderbird-trunk

The higher the version, the less it is tested, therefore it is not a good idea to use Nightly or Aurora builds.

If you have any problems with the installation, feel free to leave a comment below.

      I can’t find any release notes, but check these out:

      http://blog.mozilla.com/futurereleases (Blog about new features in Firefox/Aurora/Nightly)

      Apparently they don’t have any blogs/newsletters for Thunderbird/Earlybird/Shredder.
