From what I read here, you might be interested in what I wrote on my site, which I won't quote here because it is too long.

Hello, I'm afraid I'm another new user to Linux who's having some trouble, and it's sort of relevant to the above posts. I downloaded Firefox from the mozilla site and used the info given here to get to the installer (using konsole). So I've installed it OK unfortuneatly I then closed it down and now cant find it. I'm thinking it might be best to delete the file and start again as I'm not sure the best way to get it running anyway. The mozilla suite came with Mandrake 10.1 which is ok although plugins like java wont run. Also when I downloaded firefox initially I chose 'run with ark' and then subsequently downloaded it as 'save'. I could do with a bit of advice about downloading generally and also about how to find/run firefox. Thanks, Simon.
