Make sure Firefox is closed and the upgrade should complete on its own. This method with upgrade Firefox and not create two different versions. If you visit Mozilla’s website and download the latest build for Linux it will create a separate copy of Firefox – which is not really a bad thing but if you want to keep things clean with one version running the latest – this is the way to go.
With a ATI X1200 HD Graphics card using Firefox 4 I would say it runs 30-40% faster then 3.6 so worth the upgrade. Definitely hands down best browser for Debian based linux OS.
