portupgrade -o www/firefox35 -f firefox-3.0.X 

worked for me, no problems.  You'll have to reinstall any xpi- modules
but that's about it.  Oh, the "you've been upgraded" page FF takes you to
on first invocation has an embedded Ogg/Theora movie which seems to
crash the browser immediately: xpi-noscript helps there.

Also be aware of this:
