    I've a problem installing firefox onto my fedora core 2 machine , I'm
    a newbie with Linux but I have managed to install previous versions on
    other Linux machines.
    I've downloaded firefox-1.0.installer.tar.gz and extracted it into a
    folder /home/user/firefoxinst
    I then run firefox-installer and tell it to install in a folder
    /home/user/firefox, the installer makes the new directory but it does
    not install anything into it !
    I've tried running firefox-installer from a the shell as su - , and
    the same thing happens, no errors displayed but no files installed.

    Rant mode on.
    I think firefox is a superb browser I use it all the time on my
    Windows machine and it installed no problem, so why cant the linux
    version be as easy?
    Rant mode off.

    Thanks for any help
