Installing Firefox 3.5 on Ubunut 9.04 – the Jaunty Jackalope

After several crashes with Firefox 3.0x I decided to install the new Firefox 3.5, since the new version is managed with Synaptic Package Manager everything went smoothly, but with one gotcha. Do not remove the old Firefox, otherwise will panel shortcut and menu item be removed and when clicking on html files will nothing happens. Instead do the following:
sudo apt-get install firefox-3.5 firefox-3.5-gnome-support

Redirect the firefox link to the new version:
sudo rm /usr/bin/firefox
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/firefox-3.5 /usr/bin/firefox
