Why not use ppa? ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa

It provides firefox 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 and similar versions of xulrunner &
thunderbird. You can have stable, next release or development if you
wish switching between them =)

Plus it's build by official ubuntu-mozilla team and exactly these
versions end up in the Ubuntu (+ ubuntu branding).

Just a though =) use binaries build for ubuntu by ubuntu on your ubuntu ;-)
