    just updated to Mozilla Firefox v3.0.11 - Final for linux

    This is little tutorial how to install it in linux (Thanks to the orignal Poster)


    You need to decide if you want it installed system wide or just for one user.

    All you do is use the tar command and unpack it. If it is for one user, unpack it to a directory that makes sense, like /home/username/firefox. The tar program will unpack it and put everything in the correct directory. You can test it from a konsole, just type firefox. It should launch.

    If you want it installed system wide, use a directory like /usr/lib/firefox. Unpack it there.

    Here is the commands from the FF install instructions.

    The above assumes you downloaded the file to your home directory. If not, then you can change the path to the file.

    The second command will unpack the tar archive, and create the directory structure. You need to replace the * with the actual name of the file.

    Make a desktop link when it works. Version 3 is a compiled binary. No need to use an installer for linux.

    To test, this should work:
    once again, just use the correct path if you unpack to a different location.

    Code:
    http://mozilla.phphosts.org/firefox/releases/3.0.11/linux-i686/en-US/firefox-3.0.11.tar.bz2
    Note :I simply extracted the firefox-3.0.11.tar.bz2 to /usr/lib/firefox and it works
