I am using ubuntu 8.04 because of my hardware restrictions. I followed the steps to install latest firefox as i can use but i get firefox 3.6 could not found response:

For Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) Users

deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main

Save and exit the file

Now you need to add PPA GPG key

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 247510BE

Update the source list

sudo apt-get update

Install Firefox 3.6

sudo apt-get install firefox-3.6

If you already have a version of Firefox 3.5 installed from a repo then upgrade using the following command

sudo apt-get upgrade

Ubuntu 8.04 is not supported by Ubuntu since May 12, 2011. The Hardy repositories were removed, so that means you can only install software through .deb packages.

If you have hardware restrictions, I suggest downloading Lubuntu, which is an official Ubuntu derivative that requires less hardware restrictions.

8.04 is no longer supported and removed from the server.

However, the link provided is where the older distros are now kept.

Firefox 3.6 can be downloaded here source
