Default Firefox downgrade?

I've just upgraded to firefox 3rc1. I put the necessary in
/etc/portage/package.* but it didn't appear when doing an update world.
So I did an 'emerge -av mozilla-firefox'. This worked and you can see is
still working:

baldrick ~ # emerge -av mozilla-firefox

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]

However an update world tries to downgrade to firefox 2:
baldrick ~ # emerge --ask --verbose --update --deep --newuse --tree world
