Apt pinning isn't necessarily for the faint of heart, but it is a good
option for users willing to take the plunge.  If you really want
firefox 3.6, you can pin it from experimental.  If that process is more
complicated than you're comfortable with, you can always choose to stick
with firefox 3.5 from testing/unstable (or use mozilla's 3.6 tarball).
