tar -zxvf firefox-1.0.installer.tar.gz
cd firefox-1.0
(or whatever)
./firefox-installer

that should get you there... otherwise ls for the command name

every time I do that I get this error:

Code:
bash: ./firefox-installer: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
I get this when I install it as root to.

If you use gentoo you do not need to install packages that way or you are making the portage system useless ....
To install firefox you should do
#emerge mozilla-firefox

And it will be automatically downloaded and installed along with is dependencies (if any) ..

To check the packages available to gentoo from portage take a look here
http://packages.gentoo.org/
