So you're running TB 14.x eh? How do you like it so far?

You could of course install the Mozilla Nightlies:

Just change from 'release' to 'nightly'. But I
wouldn't recommend the OP do that.

As mentioned by Patton there is a "PPA" for "stable"
But one has to wonder why anyone would require a PPA simply to keep
