Do the following:
On console: switch to "root" by su.

#./run-mozilla.sh (enter). There is also the bash-completition availaible. So you donīt have to type in "./run-mozilla.sh". Just type "./run-mo" and then press "TAB".

I don't have a similar setup in front of me, but I seem to recall that there is an executable script simply named "firefox". Is there also a README file?

You cant break anything, so just try some obvious choices, starting with ./firefox

Hmmmm, mine (1.07) has firefox-installer. What version are you using?

Does the run-mozilla file have execute priveleges?
