If you're using desktop or menu icons to reach your browser, you can also change the location that the icon image points to. For instance, I often run an alternative browser from /usr/mozilla/mozilla instead of /usr/bin/mozilla.

First, check the version of default executable a-la /usr/bin/mozilla
Then, just find your new mozilla executable and rename old mozilla executable to other name(up to you). Then create symbolic link to your new mozilla executable with the name of your old mozilla executable.
For example:
Old mozilla executable /usr/bin/mozilla
New mozilla executable /usr/bin/mozilla-1.5
mv /usr/bin/mozilla /usr/bin/mozilla-old
ln -s /usr/bin/mozilla-1.5 /usr/bin/mozilla

Hope this helps.
