How do I upgrade Firefox from 0.8 to 0.9? (Mandrake 10)

I have no idea how to upgrade the browser, would someone mind pointing me in the right direction?

I know it's a generic question, but I don't know where to start. I've been using 0.8 for several months and love it, but do I need to uninstall it first? And if so, how do I do that?

Any help would be appreciated. It's times like this that make me feel like a complete newb.

you just have to download the new version, and there is a wizard that lets you import your bookmarks and whatnot

Thanks for the suggestion. When I download the new version however, I'm left with a compressed file that extracts into what looks like the final install. Is there an install/setup package I'm missing somewhere?
