Not sure why you'd want to go to all that work to install 4.0. 6.0 is
the current stable version:

You can download & extract to a home folder & run from there to test. It
will use your current profile (back it up first) in ~/.mozilla/firefox

BTW: 9.0a1 is the current nightly version:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110825 Firefox/9.0a1
