Downloaded firefox-3.6.3.tar.bz2 to my home directory. from root termial I entered the following lines: mv firefox-3.6.3.tar.bz2 /usr/lib/ cd /usr/lib/ tar -jxvf firefox-3.6.3.tar.bz2 ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox

Created a symlink as follows: rm -rf /usr/firefox/plugins; ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins /usr/lib/firefox/plugins

Created a launcher on debian desktop, but am uncertain about the proper command to use, I tried using "firefox" but nothing happened.

If I navagate to my file structure " / usr bin " I find firefox, but can't open or run it.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks. David.
