Exclamation Help to fully install Netscape 9

I have been running Netscape by executing the navigator shell script, but have noticed it does not show up on my program list, making it hard to use for my off-line work.
Can someone give me advice on how to fully install it to stop my problem?

Why would you want to install Netscape? Netscape was officially carried to its grave several months ago. Besides, the latest version missed a lot of features because no one was willing to invest much time in it anymore.

If you installed using a tar file, you need to make a shortcut to the program yourself.
To find the executable, in a terminal type
whereis netscape
Then create a shortcut on your desktop
