After trying to install, unintall, reinstall, using Synaptic package manager, and reading 1000 webpages I FINALLY found this website that explained how to install FF 3.6 using the command line:

It was a major PITA for me too last night. I posted something here about it in the General Help forum- I think the thread title has a typo "Firfox updating" or something like that.

Here it is:

You might want to link that webpage there too to help other readers- that was like pulling teeth to get Firefox updated!

The launcher link and icon got pretty screwed up too at first- had to manually re-do all that a few times and ways.
