Firefox 3 for Gutsy

  • firefox-3.0 - (URL not yet available) - As featured in Hardy Heron's latest alpha, the Beta 3 preview of Firefox 3.0 is now available in the Gutsy Backports repository. It is found under the "firefox-3.0" package name and can be installed side-by-side with the Firefox default with Gutsy. Firefox 3 will import and upgrade your Firefox 2 profile upon first launch but it will not modify your existing profile, so feel free to try it out hassle-free. Keep in mind that Firefox 3 is still a beta, the packaging is still in a transitioning phase, and not everything works perfectly. Please file bugs against this package in gutsy-backports, not in Ubuntu! (EDITORS: I thought this backport was worth mentioning, though I wasn't sure where to put it. Please move around and tweak wording as you find appropriate!)
