How to install Firefox 2.0 (doesn't appear in adept)


I was wondering how I would upgrade to Firefox 2.0. I have 1.5.0.7, and I did an update and a full upgrade in adept, but it still only offers 1.5. Should I install it via the command line from the .tar.gz file from mozilla.com? If so, should I uninstall Firefox 1.5?

Thanks,
BigFoot

Leave Firefox 1.5 as it is and install Firefox 2 from the tar.gz file. You can put the extracted directory in your home directory or /opt and then edit your Firefox launchers so that they point to the executable of the new version of Firefox.
