Installing Firefox


I'm fairly new to linux. Today I tried installing firefox and this is what I got

---------------------------------------------------
linux:/home/nukem/MyDocuments/firefox-installer # ./firefox-installer
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


(firefox-installer-bin:5390): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
linux:/home/nukem/MyDocuments/firefox-installer #
--------------------------------------------------

Now it doesn't come with a readme file either. How exactly do I install firefox?

What distro are you trying to install it in?

If your trying to do it in SuSE just go to YaST -> Programs -> Install and Remove Programs, search for and check firefox and click install.
