If you you want 2.0 want the unstable version. Do the following (as root):

nano -w /etc/portage/package.keywords

Put this line in the file: www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin ~x86
Save (ctrl+o) and close with ctrl+x

If you you have another architecture then x86 (e.g. amd64) please change accordingly.

A quicker way is to do:
echo "www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
