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
