My bad, guess I wasn't complete with my answer. ppa.launchpad.net/main
is what shows up in the Origin section of Synaptic Package Manager. The
installed version shows as 3.6+nobinonly-oubuntu1~mfs~karmic1. Googling
that gives https://launchpad.net/~asac/+related-software which seems to
be the right page. I got the version I am using by adding the ppa to

I wrote that warning because after trying the "ask me every time"
setting if I shutdown Firefox and restarted it, I would not be given the
option to choose my profile, it loaded directly to the profile I was
using when I shutdown. The only way I could get the choice back was to
clear the cache and restart Ubuntu. May be there is a less drastic way
to do it but this way worked for me everytime. I put the warning there
as I didn't want people messing up there system just to try to help me.
