Install Firefox with Fedora Core 3

I downloaded firefox to disk. Now, trying to install it with Fedora Core 3. Firefox installation instructions say 'Extract the tarball in the directory where you want to install Firefox, tar -xzvf firefox-'. I have a 'firefox' folder in my larry/ directory but when I command 'tar -xzvf firefox-' it says 'no such file or directory'. So, what should I do? Thanks, Larry

try extracting it in GUI by right clicking on the .tar.gz and extracting there.
