    dl the tar ball and untar it with tar -zxvf <filename>.tar.gz

    cd into the directory

    su

    run the file either with graphical install by double clicking it or you can whichever the install file is, not that much trouble really

    there is an install
    and there is a bin file, which gave me no trouble at all!

    Firefox and Thunderbird Installation

    Well the easiest way that I found it was to download the files into a directory, then in your file manager, go to the files, right click, select Extract, Extract here. Then from a command prompt, navigate your way to the directory which should now say firefox-installer. Once you are in that directory (cd firefox-installer) you will type ./ firefox-installer

    installation should begin immediately. Follow the same instructions for Thunderbird, only replace firefox-installer with thunderbird.

    If that doesn't work, just go to the fedora core update server and download the rpms, if they are available. If you can get them, the download them and open a command line as superuser (su) and type the following
    rpm -U [filename.rpm]

    RedHat package manager will then install everything for you.

    Hope this helps.
