How can I restore Firefox after updating?

I recently attempted a routine update to Firefox on my Fedora Linux PC, but after downloading the tar file and extracting it, there was some kind of error during the installation. I don't remember the exact message, but it was something to the effect of "Installation cannot be completed at this time."

Now Firefox will not launch at all. If I attempt to use the Desktop or Application Launcher icons, I get an error message. I cannot even find an executable file to try and run from the command line.

I tried extracting the .tar file a second time, but it did not help.

Firefox just killed itself, and now I'm using Chrome ...
