Firefox 4 Released! Available for Ubuntu Linux through PPA :)

Maybe it’s a bit too late, but still I’m going to share this news.. yeah, Firefox 4 has reached its Stable version yesterday ! 😀

Firefox 4 stable available for any platforms, such Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. Ah, and now, it is already on PPA Repository !! We could add it to our repository lists easily using add-apt-repository command (for Ubuntu users). With all of the features and thousand of great addons available, I think Firefox still leading the market of Web Browser now, hehehe.. 😀

So, what’s new in Firefox 4? I won’t tell you… 😛 wkwkk, just land your browser here to know 🙂

Now, for the sake of the Lord (lho??) let’s try it for real………… For Ubuntu users, just follow these simple steps to install the latest stable release of Firefox :

#1, Open up your terminal (Application > Accessories > Terminal).

#2, If you have had installed Firefox 4 (beta) from ubuntu-mozilla-daily, now you need to remove it. If you don’t, jump to step #3.

sudo apt-get –purge remove firefox-4.0

and then, remove the old ubuntu PPA :

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-mozilla-daily-ppa*

#3, Add the new Firefox stable PPA Repository :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable

update, and then install it :

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox

Just wait for a while, and now you have the latest stable version of Firefox ! Run it from Application > Internet > Firefox Web Browser. Here are some screenshots 🙂 *not the ‘fresh install’ of Firefox, it already customized a little 😀

Firefox 4 Addons Install

 

Ah, for the other distros. I think every distro has its own repository so you can update your repo list, and then install the latest version from it. If your distro doesn’t provide it, you can download the Linux version here and then give it a try. It’s in tar.bz2 format. You only need to extract it wherever you want, and then execute ‘firefox’ from the extracted folder 😀

Extract firefox-4.0.tar.bz2

 

Run it !
