Probably not, and likely won't be. Firefox is a complex beast, and since its tightly integrated into the desktop, its a big process to update, so much so that we have a dedicated firefox maintainer on the desktop team. Since we are coming up to our second beta release, there is little to no chance that the latest firefox 3.6 updates will get in, at least before final release. New minor upstream releases of 3.6 may get in post release however, so keep a look out.
