Download the source tarball and then I would mkdir firefox <thats in your home directory> move the tar.bz2 to firefox and tar xvfj <filename> then cd to the new file created,I think it is mozilla. then ./configure make and su make install.You will most likely be missing something.If you get a error track down what it is looking for and try ./configure again,good luck and have fun

try typing ./firefox-installer or sh firefox-installer, I believe I installed from the tarball and it will open up a GUI to guide you through the install, but one of those commands should get you to the GUI
