==========> firefox-18.0.2.tar.bz2
You have to bunzip2 it first... i.e
Quote:
bunzip2 firefox-18.0.2.tar.bz2
Then you'll get a file with firefox-18.0.2.tar as its name.
Now you have to untar it... i.e
Quote:
tar -xf firefox-18.0.2.tar
Mostly these packages will be having a README file in it. Just follow it.

Where is your current firefox installed to.
You have to make executable, extract to installation directory, remove existing link for firefox to /usr/bin, make link to the new /?/firefox/firefox to /usr/bin, then create icon shortcut & start.

As far as extracting you only need 1 command for convenience

tar -xvjf firefox-18.0.2.tar

Double-click the tar.bz2 to extract it; double-click "firefox" to launch it.

It's like a .zip with an .exe inside it, in Windows.
