Firefox 1.0.1 installed automatically and was added in the Applications -> Internet menu. I added it as a panel item. Nothing else seemed to be working (at least for me) however I do appreciate everyone's time and effort. Thanks.

I tried your suggestion Moloko and got this:

tripwire:~# dpkg -l xbase-clients
Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Description
+++-==============-==============-============================================
ii xbase-clients 4.3.0.dfsg.1-8 miscellaneous X clients
tripwire:~#

Whats really odd is why you didnt do this to begin with.

Why would anyone install software outside the repository for debian other than its not there is beyond me.Installing outside the debian repository is just asking for unsecure software.
