Until firefox3.5 is officially released, you may want to disable addon compatibility check as explained in the link below:

Before updating to Firefox 3.5, you should have installed the 'Nightly Tester Tools' add-on. Then, you would have a new button in the Add-ons applet to "override all compatibility". I've found that most of the old plug-ins work fine in the newer Firefox with compatibility overridden. Just a suggestion for others contemplating trying the newest Mozilla Firefox.

i solved this by replacing the synaptic firefox 3.0 with manually install firefox beta
as per

the ppa repo for firefox 3.5 3.6 allow co-existence with firefox 3.0(synaptic default)
but are limited imo with addons and other minor things
