Thanks, i found it. i thought it is suppose to be in firefox-10.02 or firefox-11.0 folder.

Another Q is: where should i put my java folder into?should i install at root folder or File System/usr/lib? or just in File System/usr?

Which one is the ideal one? Thank again.

no problem where you place it
on my system, i placed it on /usr/java (i used a package i downloaded directly from Oracle), but it seems that the JDK and JRE packages in Slackware put them in /usr/lib
You only need to make a symlink to the Java on /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins to use it on browsers

You could try to install my OpenJDK (or OpenJRE) packages on Slackware. They have been compiled from source, on Slackware 13.37.
Get the packages from http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/openjdk/ (for the JDK and JRE), http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/icedtea-web/ (for the browser plugin which is not bundled with OpenJDK as was usual with Sun/Oracle's binaries) and http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/rhino/ (the separately packaged JavaScript library which has been implemented in Java).

You can test if they installed correctly by visiting these pages:
