First question; what are you installing? Second question, what are you installing it on?

There'e nothing wrong with installing them in your home directory. In fact you can
even create a new file for your programs there. You just have to remember to add
the filename if you launch these programs off of the CLI

CLI==Command Line Interface . The place where you typ commands (like startx) in KDE i think it's called konsole.
And you can make your own $HOME/bin directory, and link mozilla (or other program executables) in it. But do not forget
to add it to your path:
Code:
if [ -d ~/bin ] ; then
    PATH=~/bin:"${PATH}"
fi
(assuming you are using bash)

You can link programs by tiping:

cd ~/bin
ln -s PROGRAMNAME EXACUTABLELOCATION

Where program name is what you want to typ in CLI, to launch a program and EXACUTABLELOCATION is where your actual program resides (like /home/yourusername/mozilla-firefox/firefox, altough path may be different.)

Hope this helps.
