It shouldn't. (But if it does, don't blame me)

Uninstall Firefox 3.0.
You can also install Firefox 3.5 directly from Ubuntu -- it's right
there in Jaunty 'universe' repository, a package called "firefox-3.5".
Ubuntu's version of Firefox 3.5 calls itself "Shiretoko", to prevent
user confusion (since you can install 3.0 and 3.5 at the same time, but
only 3.0 is officially supported by Canonical).
I once asked an older coworker and Solaris guru what happened with the
Unix-haters list. He told me that it stopped being quite so funny once Windows
NT came along.
