    This is the beta channel that you are asking folks to add. I checked out the PPA and it will install 21, not 20…

    FF 20 is also in that ppa but it was last built 27 May which is BEFORE the official release of FF 20 (2 Apr), so it is likely a pre-release version. Not that there will be much or any difference between them, but still. The FF Aurora PPA has been freshly updated today (4 Apr) with FF 22, if anyone wants to give that a spin.

    Yeah, to add the stable channel, do:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa

    you say this blog is to help beginners.yet you start “how to install firefox” by stating a number of commands to run.
    how? where?
    this is great for people who already know linux,but not helpful for real beginners.

  6. LinuxER says:

    @chunky: the commands for installing firefox 21 beta are the same as the ones for installing firefox 20, only the PPA is different.

    and , as you may notice, i have written what every command does, before coding it.
