Default Ubuntu 8.04: Migrating to Firefox 2.0.0.x from Firefox 3 Beta after a clean installation

OS: Ubuntu 8.04 *after a fresh clean installation*.

How to migrate to stable firefox 2.0.0.x (currently from
firefox 3 Beta, until firefox 3 final becomes available.

1. i) Run System::Administration::Synaptic Package Manager.

ii) Press the Search button and type firefox.

iii) By selecting the "Mark for complete removal" boxes, uninstall
the "firefox", "firefox-3.0" and its dependencies packages.

iv) Install "firefox-2" and "firefox-2-gnome-support" packages.

2. Delete the .mozilla directory under your home directory (in my case
/home/john). If you are using nautilus, activate the View::Show Hidden
Files menu item, to do this.

3. Restart Ubuntu 8.04.

Now Firefox 2.0.0.x (currently is ready to be used from the
menu Applications::Internet.

If it doesn't run at the first attempt, press Alt-F2 and type firefox-2
and press Run.

If anyone has any problems, reply to this message.
