Why dont you download the Generic Linux Firefox tar.gz from mozilla.com??? it is the easiest thing... just untar to a folder... run firefox-installer... follow the on-screen instruccions... and that's it.
what window manager are you using ? just create a link on your deskbar or panel and link it to the firefox install directory.... e.g. if you installed firefox in /usr/local (this is where i usually install it)

ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.7 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
route add default gw 192.168.1.1 dev wlan0

You can use pkgtool. As root, run pkgtool, and one of the options in the menu will show you what files were installed by each Slackware package that you have installed. Find the right one, mozilla-firefox or whatever it is, and then type this:
