How to actually update Firefox after download.

Posted

I have Ubuntu (not sure which version), and just downloaded Firefox 6 update. After the download, I extracted all the files from the zip folder. Now, I am not sure what to do. I cannot find anything that says "update here" or anything like that. How do I actually complete the update from here?
