I will answer my own question.
Download the thing fom the firefox website.
unpack the firefox directory into /usr/lib
you will now have a directory /usr/lib/firefox

delete the link /usr/bin/firefox

open a root window type
cd /usr/bin
ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox

you will then have a new link file to the new 1.5 version of firefox.

apt-get update
apt-get install firefoxwould have been the debian way...
