assuming you already installed the mozilla build with ubuntuzilla:

to get the "check for updates" functionality available, just run firefox with 'gksudo'.

see these detailed update instructions on the ubuntuzilla website:
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ubuntuzilla/index.php?title=Main_Page#Update_Official_Mozilla_ Build_of_Firefox

if you haven't yet installed the mozilla build, then just run ubuntuzilla with the "install" action, to install the latest version.
