According to our own Jorge Castro:

If you're on Ubuntu 11.04 you'll get Firefox 5 as an update within the next 24 hours (no need for PPA or any of that business)

(via https://twitter.com/#!/castrojo/status/83188233969737728)

The alternative would be to add the Mozilla Security PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa

And upgrade your system. But again, it looks like you should not have to do anything.

by the way, it makes sense to wait for the real update. This will include things like translations and extensions to their full extend, the security ppa might not –  Stefano Palazzo Jun 22 '11 at 4:25

I did a post on my blog a few days ago about this.

I think you should make a fresh installation and not upgrade it, use the binary source (tar.bz2) don't install using the apt-get or synaptics because sometimes it will replace your previous firefox. check the FTP bellow for the source of Firefox 5.

firefox ftp
