Hi Mark

Those instructions don't work for me. I don't have an /opt directiory. This is possibly a reason why the other link I posted did work. However, check  updates indicates that there is new stuff for firefox to download but system permissions deny their download.

you don't have an /opt directory ?

yes you do... your own output (from the Firefox 5 thread):

Quote
[root@localhost user]# ls -al /opt
total 16
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 4096 2011-07-13 22:54 .
drwxr-xr-x 25 root root 4096 2011-07-17 13:49 ..
drwxr-xr-x  5 root root 4096 2008-06-03 18:29 Adobe
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 4096 2011-07-13 22:54 GKxdatacard


says you do ;)

You don't have an /opt/firefox directory... which is to be expected, as the instructions *you* originally followed didn't create one.

These instructions, or the ones for Firefox 5 WILL work for you... see my response to your posting in the Firefox 5 thread:
