My apologies, checking on 
http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/web/firefox-3.5 it seems the 
repositories now have the finished product.  When I tried it a few days 
ago they still had the beta version (and an early beta at that).

Firefox 3.5 is being viewed as a major update, that doesn't overwrite a 
firefox 3 installation.  One of the reasons for this choice is the fact 
that some extensions will not run in 3.5 without modification. 
Karmic will have firefox-3.5 as the default browser.  See 
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-karmic-firefox-3.5 
for details.
