Thumbs down How to install Firefox on Puppy Linux

I'm new to Linux and I want to install the latest version of Firefox on Puppy Linux. I downloaded and extracted the files but now what? The package I downloaded doesn't have an installer. How do I install it? I also found this article about needing "required libraries"(?) or Firefox wouldn't run at all(?)

Don't know if I have these or how to find out. I even tried installing an older version using the Puppy Package Manager and hoped to update it to the newest version thereafter but the old version won't even launch! Makes me think the libraries I need are NOT installed. I hope all packages aren't this hard to install. I just wanted to install a freakin' browser! Ridiculous...

Download the firefox .pet from the link below and click on it. This will initiate the install process. The link will ask you for login and password which is puppy and linux.

Lots of software available in the forum.
