If you are running the nightly build of Firefox https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa then to remove the nightly build of Firefox run this command in the terminal

sudo apt-get remove firefox-trunk

You need to undo what you did to get the nightly builds in the first place.

for example: (may not exactly match your setup)


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/thunderbird-aurora

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade


sudo apt-get install ppa-purge      (if required)

sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/firefox-aurora
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/thunderbird-aurora

Then just update you system.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
