Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see

can you give the output of:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install firefox

This will install firefox 3.5 for you. If you want firefox 3.0 then run:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install firefox-3.0

Can you help with this problem?
