Firefox installation help

I cannot seem to get Firefox to install.

I have downloaded firefox-0.8-i686-linux-gtk2+xft.tar.gz

Untared it and what not, but cannot seem to install it.

kristijan@neo:~/downloads/firefox$ ./ Cannot execute .
No error msg's, thats all it seems to tell me. Has anyone else had this sort of problem, or know how to fix it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not run-mozilla, run the "firefox" executable.
