Here's another newbie,
Something I learned in Windoze and might be the problem here too:
Have you tried file, import to import the right settings? In Windows I have to tell firefox to import settings etc from IE to work,maybe here you need to import from Konquerer?
Hope this helps you any further,

There are 2 ways to run a bin file. For eg., if you got abc.bin,
1) #sh abc.bin
2 )#./abc.bin

For SuSE 10.1

1. download these files:

2. open your home directory and navigate to where you downloaded the rpm files

3. right-click mozilla-nspr and open it using KPackage if you're using KDE, or the default gnome package software (don't know its name), and install the rpm file.

4. then do the same for mozilla-nss, and only then to MozillaFirefox.

Now you have Firefox 2 installed.
If you're using KDE, it will be in the K-Menu, under Internet > Web Browsers > Firefox.

Just to elaborate... the other 2 rpms are files that Firefox depends on them to be installed first... This is a Dependency.
Try using a program called SMART to manage your rpm files, I really like it.
This is a step-by-step installation tutorial:

Good luck!
