This came up when Firefox 3.6 came out the question got asked about it
replacing Firefox 3.5.x in the then current Fedora releases.  The
answer then, as when this situation has arisen previously, was "no".

In this case however, especially given the massive improvements that
are expected in Firefox 4.0, I would hope that they might work around
that by either including the latest beta in the release or by provide
it as an optional, alternate package to the Firefox 3.6.x releases.

If push comes to shove though you can always grab one of the third
party releases from external packagers, or build it yourself if you're
up to it.  I'm running 4.0B1 at the moment and it's steady as a rock
so far and haven't had any problems with the plugins I use either, so
my vote would go for putting the latest beta into the release and
update it to the official release when it leaves beta.
