I've seen opinions on Australis here: Anyone try Australis yet? (New Firefox UI).

How can I install it on 64-bit Ubuntu? Is there a ppa? “Ubuntu Mozilla Daily Build Team” team has builds for Aurora (currently Firefox 27) but I couldn't find a ppa for Firefox 28 nightly builds.

Some info about Australis and how to start using it under Ubuntu via PPA can be found here:

Apparently, all you need is:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk

This does not seem to work for me. Nightly shows v28.01a (2013-11-17), but still no Australis. It only works for Ubuntu 13.04 and 13.10 apparently. – Roger Dec 1 '13 at 13:21

Unfortunately that PPA is not regularly updated. Is is currently about twenty days old. If you install the current build it will update daily.

Current build location:
