    Question How to install Firefox 3?

    Hi,
    First I'll start by apologizing for the post. Not sure if this is the right place to ask or not. I'm just so tired and frustrated at looking for an answer for something that should be obvious. So, far all the Linux flavors I've tried seem to be fairly obtuse. (or could it just be me <g>). I don't seem to be able to intuit how this stuff works. What could be more simple than d/l the Fire Fox 3 file, extract and....... nada. I had no trouble at all d/l the NVidia driver and installing that. I just haven't been able to find anything that tells me what to do with the extarcted Fire Fox 3 files. Any help appreciated.

    The simple solution is to find a oneclick install try here Webpin

    If you have the correct repos added searching in software management can achieve it depending on package.

    Webpin normally comes through though ;-)
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    Why not just use Yast to install it? You don't say what version of openSUSE
    you have , but for 11.0, you may want to set up the Mozilla build repo to
    get the latest one (Yast -> Software -> Software reopositories -> Add ->
    Community Repositories -> OpenSuse Buildservice - Mozilla). Once that's
    added, chose Software Management and search for Mozilla. Select it and let
    Yast do the work.

    That's one of several ways to install it but likely the easiest. Use the
    tools you have.
