This question already has an answer here:

I have a 10.04 desktop that has FireFox 13 installed. Whenever a new version came out it was updating, but after switching the sources list to the archive sources for 10.04 end of life, apt-get claims that FireFox is the latest version. My other 10.04 machines are running 17.

There was a PPA for the latest stable firefox, but I can't seem to find it any-more and some articles suggest it may have been discontinued?

What is the preferred way of keeping Firefox updated on EOL 10.04?

If you follow the instructions on the top answer you'll get firefox directly from Mozilla, it will then keep autoupdating on its own. Also consider upgrading to 12.04! – Jorge Castro Jun 14 '13 at 2:11
Is there any way to get it via apt or PPA? Our computers are run by unprivileged users, so it would be great if it were part of automatic updates. – Nick Jun 14 '13 at 2:17
I don't see one for 10.04 unfortunately. – Jorge Castro Jun 14 '13 at 2:19
What about ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa? Is that supported? – Nick Jun 14 '13 at 2:38

This appears to be possible by adding ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa to software sources and running apt-get update and apt-get install firefox. It also works for Thunderbird.
