Installing Firefox


I'm just doing a Kubuntu 7.10 Live CD boot, not an actual install, to try things out. I've downloaded the Firefox for Linux folder but don't know which file to double click to get the installation going (I hope it's that easy).

Please Assist

You really can't install much SW when running from Live CD. The filesystem is all in RAM and that is going to fill up pretty quickly. (And--when you reboot--whatever you installed will be gone.

All this aside, you can install FF using your package manager (Adept or Synaptic). (Almost easier than double-clicking....)
