Install Firefox 3.6 in the tr.bz2 format on Kubuntu

I am trying to install Firefox 3.6 in the tr.bz2 format on Kubuntu. How do I get it to install? Is there a way to do it using add/remove programs and the Adept installer or do I need to use the command line. If I need to use the command line what do I need to do to get it installed?

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

If you don't know how to use source packages and a ready-made installation package is available for your distro, why wouldn't you use that prepared package? Is there any particular reason you want to compile from source?

If not, then follow these instructions for Ubuntu (work for Kubuntu too), to install Firefox 3.6.
Install Firefox 3.6 Stable

Kind regards,
