If you really want to try the 4.0b12 out and are running linux emulation
and have linux-firefox installed then it's trivial.
Download firefox-4.0b12.tar.bz2, unpack it somewhere convenient, edit
firefox/firefox and change moz_libdir=/usr/local/lib/firefox-4.0b12
to moz_libdir=/usr/local/lib/linux-firefox. You can then start
firefox/firefox and it just works.
