comment Why did Firefox 8 work with Windows XP but not (initially) with Ubuntu's OS?
Do you know what the "ubuntu specific changes" were? So the Mozilla linux release worked fine on other linux distros, but there were some "ubuntu specific things" that prevented it from working properly on ubuntu?

I have Firefox PPA on Ubuntu 10.04 install. Neither my 10.04 install nor my 11.10 install received Firefox 8 for 2 weeks. The forums indicated the delay was due to the Mozilla release of Firefox 8 basically not working on Ubuntu--crashes, freezes, etc. So why does such a thing occur on Ubuntu but not XP? And why did Mozilla still release 8 if it didn't work on Ubuntu?
