I have to get the password from our admin as I don't know what it is.
then you do NOT install anything
you need root access to install firefox
now you can install the prebuilt 26 in your home folder
but getting the plugins to work might need root access
have your Administrator install ,the installed BY DEFAULT Firefox .
[ec2-user@ip-xxx-xx-x-xxx firefox]$ yum search firefox
Loaded plugins: priorities, update-motd, upgrade-helper
=============================== Matched: firefox ===============================
hunspell-si.noarch : Sinhala hunspell dictionaries
then you have a very BIG problem
you are missing the needed ( and installed by default ) software repos
if you run
--- the root password ---
you should have the
CentOS 6.5 BASE repo
set to "enabled"
and maybe have ( elrepo , epel, or rpmforge )
Why? because I am working at the cmd line. I was told the AWS EC instances do not come with a desktop.
then how the bleep do you plan to use a GUI program
if Xorg is NOT installed ,you can never use firefox
it will NEVER RUN with out the X window manager installed
CONTACT YOUR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR AND HAVE THEM INSTALL XORG GNOME2 AND FIREFOX
then watch as they laugh in your face about installing a GUI on a headless server
