    The 4 most popular methods of installation of Firefox 3.5 (Psychocats, Ubuntuzilla, Repository, Swiftfox) are available in the "Install Other Versions" section of the Firefox optimization and troubleshooting thread. I personally tested all of them and they work like a charm, but I recommend methods 1 (Psychocats) and 2 (Ubuntuzilla).
