I’ve not done a Linux post in a while. I thought that Firefox 4 deserved it.
Modern Ubuntu releases have made this whole process incredibly easy. Gone are the days of trying to figure out exactly which repository to add for your release or downloading helper applications to get you through the process correctly. This is all you have to do now.
Open up a terminal. Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal.
OR Super+space -> (start typing the word) terminal for us Gnome-Do people.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox
and that gets you…
After a day of using it, I’m impressed. I might not be hitting that little Chrome icon for a while. We’ll see how I feel after a week.
I’ve been having a problem with my right click menu on Firefox 4. When I right click, the menu pops up, but when I move my mouse even 1 pixel, the menu immediately goes away. This makes it impossible to actually click that menu. Super annoying. Closing and re-opening the browser seems to fix the problem.
BUT! There’s a better fix.
Ta-da! No more problems. (so far)
