On my system firefox2 & 3 coexist without any problem and share the same ~/.mozilla/firefox directory.
If you watch the ports tree you will see that firefox-3.0 and firefox- are presented as independent ports www/firefox and www/firefox3. They are executed by the following scripts: /usr/local/bin/firefox and /usr/local/bin/firefox3 respectively. Also portinstall or pkg_add put binaries into /usr/local/lib/firefox/ and /usr/local/lib/firefox3/ directories. So there is no danger of overwriting critical files.
