Update Firefox to new update:
1-Update: Firefox 3.5 is released! Install Firefox 3.5 in Ubuntu the easiest way.
2-Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following launchpad repo.
3-deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozi...ily/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozi...ily/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
4-Add the Launchpad PPA GPG key
5-sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 247510BE
How can i do that is there other way around here?
Thank you for helping me out.

Hi squirmph, Ubuntu 8.04 is the "long term support" release and it contains a very stable and well-tested version of Firefox. ubuntu-mozilla-daily is a totally unsupported and unstable 3rd party software source containing the daily development testing build of Firefox. Are you sure you want to do this? Do you have the technical skills to troubleshoot any issues that might arise from using an unstable web browser?

A safer way to get Firefox 3.6 is from Ubuntuzilla: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/search/recent/

Or directly from Mozilla: http://firefox.com

Either method should give you the latest stable Firefox, rather than the daily development build.

To upgrade Firefox via the repos, you first have to upgrade Ubuntu. Maybe to the Lucid Lynx, considering it is the only version of Ubuntu that has or supports Firefox 3.6. Karmic supports 3.5 (and has 3.5), but is very buggy. My suggestion: Wait until Beta 1 of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (aka Lucid Lynx), add the Lucid repos manually, and then upgrade.
