I'm a new Linux user trying to upgrade to 3.6. It's downloading but not installing. What am I doing wrong?

Posted

I want to upgrade to 3.6. Download is showing in the download box. When I open it, it opens in an archive window and shows a list of files. None of this makes sense to me. How do I install the upgrade?

If you want to wait a little while, when Firefox 3.6.4 is released, Ubuntu will automatically update your current Firefox 3 installation to 3.6.4.
