    Problem installing Firefox


    For some reason I can't use ./configure at all after unpacking the file.

    Here are the steps I've taken so far

    tar -xzf firefox-1.0.4.installer.tar.gz
    ./configure

    It comes up with this

    [root@localhost Documents]# ./configure
    bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

    What am I doing wrong?

    Even changing to the newly created folder and doing the ./configure does the same thing.

    Anyone help me please?

    Hello! I'm not on Linux right now and I'm trying to remember, but I don't think you have to "./configure" Firefox. Just cd into the directory it made after untarring it and do:

    Code:
    ./firefox-installer or ./firefox-installer.bin
    It's one of those, but I can't remember right now. Hope this helps.

    I'm very very new to Linux so just use Google to find things out but if I get really stuck, I come to this place.

    Anyhow, I figured it out by accident. There was a file called firefox-installer. I just double clicked that and it started up ok.

    Thanks for your help.
