I always extract the tarball to a new directory, never on top of a 
previous version.
e.g. extract to  /opt/firefox-28.0 and then symlink /opt/firefox to that.
Keeping the most recent versions makes it easy to switch back.

drwxr-xr-x   8 root     root          42 Mar  3 14:42 firefox-27.0.1
drwxr-xr-x   8 root     root          42 Mar 19 11:15 firefox-28.0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          12 Mar 19 11:16 firefox -> 

Perhaps the OP should clean up (delete) the old firefox directories 
before upgrading.
