I chose not to uninstall the distributed one. I unpackaed the 3.0rc1
tarball in the $HOME of a user and run it from there.

]$ ls -l bin/firefox
lrwxrwxrwx 1 hardtolove hardtolove 32 May 21 13:07 bin/firefox
-> /home/hardtolove/firefox/firefox

Then, modify PATH assignment in ~/.bash_profile to something like this

$ echo $PATH

This lets all other users get the box-stock version while I test the new
one. So far it's looking pretty good.
