Try completely uninstalling firefox and then just try installing the beta.

Sounds like you still have the older version of firefox installed. I think we need more information from you regarding your problem.
First of all, how are you running firefox - command line, startup icon?
Perhaps your path needs to be adjusted to find the new firefox first?

There's no reason you can't have both versions of Firefox installed, they should have different binary names. Whatever you're using to open Firefox is pointing at the 3.6 binary. I think the default name for the beta binary is firefox-bin.
I would create a directory in /opt for the beta and put everything there, then create a .desktop file to launch, for example:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Firefox Beta GenericName=Web Browser Icon=mozicon128.png Type=Application Categories=Application;Network; MimeType=text/html Encoding=UTF-8 Exec=/opt/firefox-beta/firefox-bin %u Terminal=false MultipleArgs=false StartupNotify=false

I'm running the FF beta from my home directory,opt being reserved for real* software that isn't from the repositories. I just created a desktop shortcut to /home/elija/firefox/firefox and it all seems to workWhat do we want?
When do we want 'em?
Doesn't really matter does it!?
