I see. There is supposed to be a file firefox.desktop to be put in /usr/share/applications. This wasn't included in the tar.gz.
These questions remain
- Do people normally create their own .desktop file?
- What is the default directory to extract the firefox EDIT: Okay there isn't such a thing but I see on one website /usr/local/firefox/firefox.
Everyone has Firefox right? But why is the installation so complicated (people actually have to untar, copy to right directory and create firefox.desktop file put it under /usr/share/applications; find the icon file and put it in /usr/share/pixmaps)? How is a regular user supposed to find this out, there are no instructions on http://www.mozilla.com/
