How do I upgrade Firefox without upgrading my distro?

Do I have to update to Hardy or is there another way to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox?

Every time, FF gets a new version. It asks me to upgrade when I opened it.

In some Linux distros you can upgrade Firefox by logging on as root. I'm not sure if you could update Firefox this way in Ubuntu, but here is the instructions.

  • Go to terminal and enter "sudo firefox".
  • When Firefox appears go to help > check for updates.
  • And follow the prompts

There is a nice way to upgrade a firefox to latest version, which I have learnt recently.

1. Download ubuntuzilla deb from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ubuntuzilla/

2. run ubuntuzilla.py which asks to upgrade to latest version.

3. At the end it asks for checking Firefox update frequently. If you say y, next time you will be promt to upgrade firefox when update is available.

HTH

However Firefox can also be upgraded using system upgrade depedent method. i.e You have to look at System updater menu and select the appropriate firefox update. Here i assume that you have configured system updater.
