Can I get Firefox 4 as deb-package?

Posted

On main page of the Mozilla's site I can download only tar.gz archive with binaries. Where I can get deb-package to install browser in usual way?

Chosen solution

The preferred method for installing Firefox on Linux is through your distro's repos. Use 'sudo apt-get install firefox' in a terminal, or try Software Center or Synaptic.

I see you are using Ubuntu 10.10, so if your repos don't have version 4 you can add the mozilla-team ppa.

Then you can install via CLI, Software Center, or Synaptic as I noted above.

I tired this method on Jaunty 9.04 Ubuntu and got the following errors because it is unsupported.

>>sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable >>[sudo] password for me: >>sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found

where is the repository for Firefox 5.0.1 .deb packages?
