Which kind of the package is it? If it's a standard installer, you can install it in any place you prefer (/usr/local/firefox may be a good candidate). Then you should move plugins between the installations. Just copy the 'plugins' directory from old installation to /usr/local/firefox/plugins (if you follow my scheme). When you confim that the new version works OK, you may remove the old one.

OK ,

but the problem is that i cant find the old ver plugin folder it's not anther /user/local/firefox

(and I HAVE firefox 0.8 install and working )

Cant find the plugin folder to move to the new installation where i can find it ?

p.s. i cant find any firefox folder at all just same files in /user/bin but not plugin folder

the firefox 0.8 was install with all suse 9.1 installation ...packages.

What does 'which firefox' return? You should get the executable with full path (possibly the one for 0.8). It should be at the same level. You can also try
find / -name plugins 2>/dev/null
(2>/dev/null to get rid of 'permission denied messages).
The list may notbe very short, but the right directory should be mentioned.
