Ubuntu PPA for Firefox 4.0b2 – Tested & Working :-)

leave a comment »

The latest firefox without the update hassle.
One daily a month from ubuntu-mozilla-daily.

  • One update a month.
  • Firefox and xulrunner only.
  • Tested in a virtual machine.

Firefox has its own PPA so nothing else gets updated.
You don’t get swamped with updates.
You do get the latest Firefox each month.

One Daily A Month – The latest firefox without the update hassle.

leave a comment »

One downside of using ubuntu-mozilla-daily is the number of updates offered.
Another is that packages other than Firefox are present in the PPA.

This is my solution.
