    Problems installing the current version of FF on RHE


    So the down load is in bz2 form and I got that files extracted the problem is older versions are under the usr/lib with a script in the usr/bin that points to the firefox folder under the ussr/lib. The current version doesn't have a script just two executables firefox, firefox-bin. I'm thinking I could create a new FF folder under the usr/lib and point the existing FF script to it. The FF website says to install on Linux using the Package Manager but the download isn't in rpm form.

    Any help

    You could place the new FF anywhere you like, I placed mine under the /opt directory.
    Then just create a symlink to Firefox in the directory you place the new version in.
