Sorry I'm unable to help - just wanted to report the same behaviour.
Examination of the terminal on an apt-get of the package showed
conflicts between 'mozilla-firefox' and 'firefox'. I tried to manually
rm the affected files, but this was no use. I tried to remove entirely
'mozilla-firefox' but this creatres a dependency problem to
'ubuntu-desktop' - which I think is the ubuntu system.

Perhaps a binary build from the Firefox site? (I didn't have time to check it)
