Installing the latest version of FireFox on Slackware 13.37?

Does anyone have instructions? I am running KDE Desktop?

Most likely, just download the latest version on the firefox website, then install; Where are you having issues installing the latest version at?

The latest "official" release is 6.0.2. If you haven't got that, uncomment a mirror in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors, then run as root:
slackpkg update gpg
slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade-all
If you want to try the 7 beta release, run it from your home directory.
