I would like to install Firefox Aurora in parallel with the "release" version of Firefox. I do not want to replace the release version.

I managed to do this with Firefox nightly but not with Aurora.

OS : Precise
Browser : Firefox 16

How did you do this with the nightly build (which you report did work)? Please provide details about that, and also explain what method or methods you've tried for installing Aurora. This should make it possible to identify specifically the differences that are causing one way to succeed and the other to fail. – Eliah Kagan Oct 21 '12 at 20:29

Download the latest aurora build from here

mozilla download

extract it and move it to /opt/firefox/aurora or what ever you wanna call the folder.

and simply run /opt/firefox/aurora/firefox
