Ubuntu Install Firefox Stable Version

There are two types of firefox versions

  1. Stable Version: Which is official release
  2. Development Version(Called as beta version or with some other name): Which is under development

Procedure to install firefox stable version:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install firefox

Procedure to install firefox development version:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install firefox

After installing firefox development version you can’t directly install firefox stable version, since apt-get always try to install most recent version of firefox from available list, but there is a way to to install the stable version with following procedure:

  • sudo apt-get remove firefox
  • Go to directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d
  • Delete the files mozillateam-firefox-next-lucid.list.save and mozillateam-firefox-next-lucid.list 
  • Now again install firefox with sudo apt-get install firefox
