My computer came installed with Firefox 3 beta 5.
Normally I would be fine, but it keeps freezing up every few seconds.

So I tried to update to 3.0.1, but my computer says that 3 beta 5 is the most up to date.

I then attempted a manual install from the repositories, and it said that cannot install, dependent on xulrunner or something.

Finally, I just gave up and installed firefox 3.0.1 for windows using wine.

Could you tell me how to install 3.0.1 for ubuntu?

Thanks,

Your computer (from your computer specs) indicates a Windows Vista Business installation. Do you have another hard drive with Ubuntu 8.04 on it?

If you have a Linux Ubuntu 8.04 installed on a hard drive, see my post in this thread (post#2) for detailed instructions on installing firefox (from the root aka Linux system admin account).

Hi, I tried what you said, but then i get

mv: cannot stat `firefox': No such file or directory

I also tried checking update firefox in preferences, but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

Help?

At the beginning of the link I provided you to the other thread, there was some information about the the executables in paragraph 5 starting with the sentence:
The following links are how my Firefox executable is setup

Issue those commands to check on how your executables are setup - the answer to you question is there. I do not know what your "mv" command is related to what you were trying to do.
