xterm default home directory


I'm running Slackware 10.0 and am definately a newbie. Last night I wanted to install FireFox. I was in XCFE, I brought up an xterm window and installed FireFox successfully. Now when I bring up xterm, it comes up in the ~/firefox-installer directory.

How can I get my default directory in xterm set up to be my home directory?

Thanks in advance.

I thought I tried that, but I might be mistaken. I'll try again when I get home. Thanks.
