Thank you for your bug report, but your install has been broken by a third party package (most likely from Ubuntuzilla). Please report your issue to them instead

This bug was fixed in the package firefox - 4.0~b12+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu2

---------------
firefox (4.0~b12+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu2) natty; urgency=low

  * Fix some typos in the manpage
    - update debian/firefox.1.in
  * Fix up the mess left by Ubuntuzilla rather than leaving our official
    package in a broken and inconsistent state, which ends up with users
    reporting bugs to Launchpad and giving us a bad reputation. If
    /usr/bin/firefox has been diverted and there is no /usr/bin/firefox
    provided on the system, just do the job of whatever package it was that
    broke the users install and remove the diversion for them. This should
    hopefully stop the frequently reported bugs we get from Ubuntuzilla users
    about /usr/bin/firefox being missing
    - update debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - Fixes LP: #512937, LP: #529136, LP: #552919, LP: #572733, LP: #574111,

  * Don't allow users to report bugs with apport-bug when /usr/bin/firefox
    has been diverted
    - update debian/firefox.py.in
  * Don't build with --disable-elfhack on armel. It's been fixed now
    - update debian/rules
