sudo apt-get install firefox [sudo] password for Blue: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done firefox is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 557 not upgraded. – blue Apr 30 '13 at 10:24
...Done firefox is already the newest version... Seems Firefox is up to date. :) – Meintjes Apr 30 '13 at 10:36

To install the latest Firefox in Ubuntu 11.10, download the desired file either the 32Bit or 64Bit package depending on your system from Here. Once downloaded, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, navigate to where the file was downloaded, and run the command below:

sudo dpkg -i <package_name>

As far as your comment on how to highlight the commands in the question, just type the command(s), and press the <$> on top of the box.
