I downloaded and extracted ( tar -zxf ) the firefox 27 file
from the link above.
While extracting, it complained of being unable to create a
simlink to the profile, and said this could cause security problems,
but completed the extraction anyway.
I can launch Firefox from the .mozilla directory, and it opens
its window and tries to connect to an URL typed in the address bar,
but so far failed to connect to anything.
The network connection was OK and could be used with SeaMonkey,
within its limitations.
Are there any more detailed instruction about how to install this
Firefox ? I do not want the standard .pet installation to the savefile.
What is the difference between firefox and firefox-bin ?
Both files are near the same size and either one will launch
Firefox from commandline .

[quote=" What is the difference between firefox and firefox-bin ?

AFAIK, none. Some Linux versions (not Puppies) expect a "bin" file, so firefox publishes one. IMHO, a waste of space and bandwidth.

firefox's profile folder is where settings, addons and bookmarks will be stored. Unless, like fredx181's firefox quantum portable the application is specifically packaged otherwise, AFAIK, all firefox packages are designed to create and use a profile folder in the user's home folder, which in Puppies will be the hidden folder in root: /root/.mozilla. Note the dot(.) Left-Click rox's Eye (or if using a different file-manager look in the "view" tab and make necessary changes) to see them.

I am not familiar with the firefox package you used. However, I do know that (a) you can not create a symbolic link having the same name and location as a file/folder with that name; nor can you create a symbolic link to a file/folder which doesn't exist. If the former, deleting .mozilla before installation would obviate the error; if the latter, copying /root/.mozilla from a Puppy which has it should obviate the error.

But before doing the above, open /usr/share/applications/firefox_WHATEVER.desktop in a text editor. Examine the line which begins with Exec=. If it includes more than the location and name of the executable (e.g. firefox) such as firefox %f or firefox /SOME URL, the application may be attempting to open a file or webpage which does not exist. Delete such specifications, save the file change, restart-x --which tells your Puppy to re-catalog what its system consists of-- and try firefox again. If that didn't work, don't Save the change to your SaveFile/Folder. Saving to the SaveFile/Folder will only complicate resolving the problem.
