Re: [vox-tech] Fwd: installing firefox and Tar.gz files

Your linux distribution, if you keep it up-to-date, should provide a recent version of Firefox. That is the best way to upgrade.

If you want to use a downloaded tar.gz, first expand it. In konqueror you can do this by right clicking and choosing "extract". I forget the command line way to do it. There should be a readme or install file inside that will tell you what to do.
