Public bug reported:

its not possible to install firefox if this package is installed. dpkg
will fail to install firefox because firefox.desktop is owned by another
package kubuntu-firefox-installer.

this bug is identical to a closed bug from natty 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/717666

more info can be seen on KFN (where a user reported the error for amd64) 
http://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthread.php?62345-Can-t-get-firefox-to-install

possible solution is to rename the firefox.desktop provided by the
installer to firefox_installer.desktop.
