A couple of days back, we reported that Firefox 5.0 was available ahead of its scheduled release date in Mozilla’s FTP server. Well, today it has landed in the firefox-next PPA that Mozilla maintains for early adopters.
The ninth beta release in the new Firefox 25.x branch has been made available for download by Mozilla for all available platforms, including Linux. If the previous versions of Firefox are any indication, it means we are getting closer to a new stable version, in this case the 25.x branch. There is no official word on what this build brings, but you can be sure it's about security fixes.
