Get yourself Firefox and Thunderbird 5, 6, 7 and 8 via PPA

Recently we announced the availability of Firefox 6 and 8 for testing, also in Firefox 7. The installation was common to all distributions to be based on the executable provided by Mozilla. Users of Ubuntu and derivatives, however, have it easier.


Via PPA repositories useful for any active version of Ubuntu, get with the current stable version or the development of Firefox or Thunderbird is as easy as running the following in console:

Firefox
5.0 (Stable):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
6.0 (Beta):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
7.0 (Aurora):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
8.0 (Nightly):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Thunderbird
5.0 (Stable):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
6.0 (Beta):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-next
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
7.0 (Aurora):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/thunderbird-aurora
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
8.0 (Nightly):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Eye to the fact: we have not tested or repositories or versions, but while the former are official or what is the same, insurance, development versions of both Firefox and Thunderbird are only for testing and are not recommended for production environments, especially the "Nightly" and "Aurora."
