Recently, new builds for Firefox and Thunderbird have been released and available for installation via PPA:

  • Firefox 13.0
  • Thunderbird 13.0 
As these are UNSTABLE releases, you may encounter bugs while running them, so use them just for testing. It is not necessary to uninstall previous stable releases of Firefox and Thunderbird, you can install with no problem.

To install Firefox 13.0 on Ubuntu 11.10/12.04 or any older version of Ubuntu (11.04/10.10/10.04), issue these commands from the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk

To install Thunderbird 13.0, run these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install thunderbird-trunk

You can also install Thunderbird Earlybird 12.0 with following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/thunderbird-aurora
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install thunderbird

If you want to uninstall them, run the following commands:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/thunderbird-aurora

That's it!
