Xebian is just Debian with a tweaked interface to look good on an Xbox. It uses the standard Debian sources to update packages. I have no idea what version of Firefox is in the sources for Xebian (what version of Debian is it based on?).
If you want the latest Firefox, you'll probably have to do it manually. As it is Debian underneath, I'm sure there are guides aplenty on the net that can help you in doing that.
In short though, you just need to something like this, in a terminal:
wget ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest/linux-i686/en-US/firefox-8.0.1.tar.bz2 tar jxf firefox-8.0.1.tar.bz2 sudo mkdir -p /opt sudo mv ./firefox /opt/ sudo ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/local/bin/firefox
