Firefox And Namoroka

In an attempt to install Firefox 4, I accidentally bumped into Namoroka.

Seems like the PUBKEY EF4186FE247510BE isn't available at the moment. I tried exporting the key, as given on Rectifying apt-get GPG Error, but couldn't succeed. Adding the repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa did not work either.

Then on searching in Synaptic Package Manager, I found that firefox-4 was there (much to my surprise, as adding the repository failed). I installed it, and found that Namoroka Firefox pre-release has been installed on my Ubuntu 10.04 system. It is Firefox after all, but not the usual one we prefer.

Obviously there are a few changes and incapabilities, which I'll discuss in the next post.
