To install Mozilla by downloading the Mozilla installer,
follow these steps:

1. Create a directory named mozilla (mkdir mozilla)
and change to that directory (cd mozilla).

2. Click the link on the site you're downloading
Mozilla from to download the installer file
(called mozilla-1686-pc-linux-gnu-installer.tar.gz)
to your machine.

3. Change to the mozilla directory (cd mozilla) and
decompress the archive with the following command:

tar zxvf moz*.tar.gz

The installer is now located in a subdirectory of
Mozilla named mozilla-installer.

4. Change to the mozilla-installer directory
(cd mozilla-installer) and run the installer with the
./mozilla-installer command.

5. Follow the instructions in the install wizard for
installing Mozilla.

What version of gnome are you using? If Mozilla isn't already listed in the menu, you should be able to just type "mozilla &" at the command line if it's in your path. If it's not, find out where the binary is (for instance: ~/.mozilla/mozilla ) and just type the full path/filename and it should work.
