Hi Miykel,

Have you tried:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk

There is info on the packages here:

https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa/+packages

Hopefully this helps!

Question owner

Thanks so much Matt for the reply, will that code install Firefox Nightly or just the normal Firefox ?? I downloaded the Firefox Nightly 64 bit .tar.bz2 package from the Mozilla site, but it has no readme or install.sh file when I extracted it so I have no idea how to install it or weather it is ment to be installed.
