If, at first FF 3.0.6 launch, when it ask about default browser you answer

- yes : become my default browser
(it save /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.6/firefox in gnome config)
- no : don't check this again
(it will not check and save new path in gnome config)

So : you shouldn't anwser Yes to the first question

Fix : System / Pref. / Personal / Pref app => Firefox
(will save firefox (without path) in the gnome pref)

Improvment : defaulf firefox config should be set to not test default
browser on Launch:  browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser = false

Hope that helps
