Canonical has announced a few minutes ago, September 17, that they've updated the Mozilla Firefox packages to version 24.0, on all their supported Ubuntu operating systems, making Ubuntu the first Linux distribution with Firefox 24.
As expected, Mozilla officially released the Firefox 24 web browser today with features like close tabs to the right, pinned tabs improvements, New Tab Page loading improvements, SVG rendering improvements, enhanced debugging experience, and much more.
Therefore, Mozilla Firefox 24.0 is now available for all supported Ubuntu platforms, including Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail), Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal), and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin).
All users are urged to upgrade to the new version as soon as possible! For that, you can use the built-in Update Manager tool or the Linux Terminal.
Other Linux users can download the Mozilla Firefox 24.0 binaries and sources right now from Softpedia. Also, don't forget to visit our always up-to-date Firefox Extensions section for the latest add-ons.
