Installing Firefox 3.5 in Ubuntu & updating Google Gears for Firefox 3.5

Great news! Firefox 3.5 is now officially in Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty)'s repositories. However, you have to install it manually, i.e., it will not be automatically updated.

Installation is pretty simple and straightforward. Open Terminal and type the following:

sudo apt-get install firefox-3.5

You will get a separate blue globe icon labelled "Shiretoko" (the codename for Firefox 3.5). Firefox 3.0.11 remains installed.

Google Gears is now officially updated for Firefox 3.5. Visit Google Gears' homepage to download and install the latest version, or use Firefox's Add-ons manager (under Firefox's Tools submenu) to update Google Gears.
