    There does not seem to be an “oneiric” release for ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable.

    I keep getting the following when I try to use Update Manager.

    W:Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/firefox-stable/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/source/Sources 404 Not Found

      sorry for this (POST UPDATED)
      There is no Firefox-stable PPA for Oneric. try this

      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install firefox

      To uninstall a ppa and revert to the default version

      sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
      sudo ppa-purge ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable
