Is there a way to ensure that Figure X is always before Figure (X+1)? They are referenced in the text in the correct order but it seems that Latex rearranges their appearance within the document.

If you use the H option of the float package, this may happen. It could force a figure to appear while previous figures are not yet printed. In that case consider to replace H or use \clearpage, \FloatBarrier (of placeins) or similar before.

Otherwise please provide some more information, like used placement options and preamble or even better: a minimal working example.

\FloatBarrier does the trick for me – Chris Dec 13 '10 at 10:27
