Firefox Update: "Real or actual correct method" to do so.


Okay ,on a open suse install I had firefox 30 installed and wanted to update to 31. I was having issues with big updates with curl via zypper/yast so I downloaded the tar file from mozilla with wget. I opened the tar file in my home directory and ran
Code:
firefox/firefox
. I also changed my xfce menu launcher to firefox/firefox from ( firefox %u ). I get this output if launched from cli.
Code:
(process:13753): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed   and  firefox:14534): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::display after class was initialised

(firefox:14534): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::default-icon after class was initialised

(firefox:14534): IBUS-WARNING **: Unable to connect to ibus: Could not connect: Connection refused

(process:14534): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
and a ever increasing series of
Code:
(firefox:12539): dconf-CRITICAL **: unable to create file '/run/user/1000/dconf/user': Permission denied.  dconf will not work properly.
This this just basically noise? This file does exist on my system and this is in it ,
Code:
\00\00
.

Also can/should I compare all the firefox files I have and delete the ones that 31 does not need to keep my file system clean? If so what is the best way to do this.

One other thing I was wondering about, should I make the changes so I can just open firefox up with ( firefox ) in the terminal?

Thanks for your expertise!

I have Zorin OS running on a HP Compaq nx6120..

I have Firefox 26 installed and it does not offer automatic updates except for the search engine..

I followed the Mozilla web page instructions.. downloaded the firefox...tar.bz2 file and proceded to use terminal to extract it with.. [tar xjf firefox-*.tar.bz2]

I go to [cd firefox] and run [firefox] and it just opens my installed version.. no update has occurred.. any knowledge welcome.
