This is a dangerous script, Make sure you understand what it does before running it. The Ubunutu developers will not likely support you if you use it and run into problems and more the the point, this script can cause your system to become totally unusable.
One of the major things this does is to replace repository information, but it does make a backup before replacing it.
As with any script, as mentioned multiple times on the ubuntuforums, beware.
Sudo is not required for the chmod. The file will be downloaded and therefore owned by the user. Sudo would only be required if the file was not downloaded by the user whom downloaded the file.
This is a powerful but dangerous script. I would not recommend the install of Firefox 4. Selecting this will eliminate your bookmarks and you will not be able to restore them from JSON type backup files as there is a bug in 4 that prevents processing such backups.
This script doesn’t install Firefox 4. The script is very helpful for new user. Just as we exercise command in the terminal. They are safe. The code is written good. It is developed for two years (information from Google). I see no major bugs. I didn’t spoil anything. Tested fine.
