Sempron 2400 (Ubuntu 9.04)
I upgraded to Firefox 3.5 on my desktop Linux installation (Ubuntu 9.04 on Sempron 2400) simply by following instructions suggested on Ubuntu community documentation page about installing firefox new versions. I so simply clicked on Firefox's 3.5 APT Link (apt:firefox-3.5) to install all needed packages (As you probably already know I ever prefer the easy way).
At last I replaced firefox symbolic link from terminal by simply typing:
sudo rm /usr/bin/firefoxEEEPC (EEEBuntu)
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/firefox-3.5 /usr/bin/firefox
Upgrade Firefox on EEEBuntu it's a quite different thing (I haven't upgraded to EEEBuntu 3.0 yet) I did choose to try the command line way as suggested in Lifehaker and Kabatology blogs.
I backed-up my firefox settings:
and then launched the long download-and-install command (of course it must be typed all on a single line)cp -r ~/.mozilla/firefox/ ~/firefox_backup
sudo wget -O - http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/
en-US/firefox-3.5.tar.bz2 | sudo tar xj -C /opt
I didn't resist, so I personalized it in order to install Firefox on the /opt path.
At last I changed the firefox link like in previous installation:
sudo rm /usr/bin/firefox
sudo ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
