well the firefox executable is there. what is the output of
Code:
./firefox
the './' is important as that makes your terminal look in the current directory for the executable.


I'm a bit stumped as to why `ls -l` didn't give you the permissions/owner/data of each of the files

it is the lowercase character L you want, copy this bit of code
Code:
ls -l
As for the firefox error, I don't know the answer to that problem, except that if you were to startx as one user, then open firefox as another user you get a similar error message

I meant type in ls -l instead of ls -1 because that's what you had posted ls -1. Sorry, I was tired, said it wrong. =P

This suggests that you already have firefox running. Type the command
Code:
$ ps -A | grep firefox
If you see something like my output:
Code:
$ ps -A | grep firefox
 2974 ?        00:00:00 firefox
 3021 ?        00:01:07 firefox-bin
then firefox is already running.

(Of course, this begs the question of why firefox didn't just connect to the running process. Unless, perhaps, it was running for a different user? But then it should have just asked you ffor a different profile.)

I do note that you installed firefox to a local, user, directory rather than in the usual /usr/bin directory. Did you have some reason to restrict firefox to a single user id?

why dont you just install suse 10.0 (NOT 10.1: its buggy) and then use the firefox that is already on there? If you download the DVD for Suse 10.0 all the software you will most likely need is provided on the DVD- and avaliable in the install process.

For Firefox - let the computer do the work for you. Use 'Find Files/Folders' in the "K" menu:

Type firefox in the top line, and just put the symbol / in the second line. It may take a while, but it will find the firefox executable. If firefox doesn't work, try mozilla-firefox.
If you have just downloaded it and not seen it since, it may just be in your home directory or in a /tmp folder. Then run the executable.

It should be put into a folder in /usr/bin, but it will still work from wherever it is, it will just be untidy.

Then right-click on the "K", and select 'Menu Editor'. That should be self-explanatory. Just make sure the path is exactly the same as the place where you found firefox.
Then right click on the panel and select 'Panel Menu', and add firefox to it. You may have to make room for it to fit.

Finally drag the symbol up onto the desktop and choose 'copy here'.
