    64 bit Can't install Firefox 3.6.2

    Hi, I'm running 64 bit Karmic and I've had mozillateam repositories in my sources.list for some time. last 2 (i think) upgrades went fine, but today, after I tried to upgrade to firefox 3.6.2 (via Update manager) I've encountered a problem.

    Here is the output from the teminal window after I run sudo apt-get install firefox:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    firefox is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    2 not fully installed or removed.
    After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
    Setting up firefox (3.6.2+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~mfs~karmic1) ...
    update-alternatives: error: alternative path /usr/bin/firefox doesn't exist.
    dpkg: error processing firefox (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ubufox:
     ubufox depends on firefox | abrowser | firefox-3.0 | firefox-2; however:
      Package firefox is not configured yet.
      Package abrowser is not installed.
      Package firefox-3.0 is not installed.
      Package firefox which provides firefox-3.0 is not configured yet.
      Package firefox-2 is not installed.
      Package firefox which provides firefox-2 is not configured yet.
    dpkg: error processing ubufox (--configure):
     dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure.
                              Errors were encountered while processing:
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    Firefox icon appears in panel, but when I click on it, I get an error message that says:

    "Failed to execute child process "firefox" (No such file or directory)"

    Any help, please?
