Sorry, I can't help you too much with FF install options. What I did was 
uninstall FF3 and install FF2. But I don't use any addons, so I can't 
tell you if that is all you need to do.

Yes, the files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d might be usefull if you want to 
install the same packages you have in Gutsy. They are usually for 
additional repositories like medibuntu. While there are instructions on 
the medibuntu website how to add their repository, you may have no 
instructions for other repositories.
