you could install it manually, just remove the version installed on your machine with synaptic, download this:

I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry for it tbh. I have it on another installation and at least 50% of it doesn't work.
No bookmarks
No history
No speeddial
No Foxmarks
No Flash

And those I found with just a cursory glance, there are probably more.
Incidentally Opera on the same installation works perfectly as did 3.0.5, so it is something to do with 3.0.6 not my installation.

EDIT: I found out how to fix all those problems in one go, simply use

Code: Select all

firefox -profilemanager
and create a new profile. The old one must have been corrupted when 3.0.6 was installed.

Having solved it and got it working I must say that I would be hard pressed to tell the difference between this and 3.0.5, but as I said I am not really a full time FF user.

The update must be for Felicia and not Elyssa, hopefully it follows soon.

I'm using Elyssa! Did you do a manual refresh? It should be there.
