@my good friend

If you want to uninstal it, please make sure your firefox version.
open terminal:

type : fire

then press "tab" to get suggestion of terminal

It will be like this, if you have been using ubuntu 9.10:

firefox-3.5

then go to remove:

sudo apt-get remove firefox-3.5

I hardly comment, but i did some searching and wound
up here "How to Install firefox-3.5.5.tar.bz2 on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic".
And I do have some questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it just me or does it look as if like some of these comments appear like

posting at other social sites, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

I believe everything typed was actually very logical. However, what about this?
what if you were to create a awesome title? I am not saying your content isn't good, however what if you added a title that grabbed folk's attention?

I mean "How to Install firefox-3.5.5.tar.bz2 on Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic" is a little boring.
You might look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people excited about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
