Installing the latest Firefox on Linux Mint

This probably applies to Ubuntu as well, but on my Linux Mint 10 install it was stuck on Firefox 3.5 with the occasional updates so how do you get the latest Firefox to install with updates?

Well it’s pretty simple, first make sure FireFox isn’t running then:

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

Thats all thats needed.
