The centos package came with 3.05.. I downloaded the 3.5 archive from the net and "tar jxf firefox.tar.bz2" as a user (not root) and then am able to launch it from the folder with "./firefox" I understand that this means that this is only available for the current user
What I'd like to do on the gnome desktop is to create links (with the firefox icon) that launches this new 3.5 version. Creating a link on the firefox creates a shortcut that doesnt quite seem to know that it needs to run (it keeps asking that question). Also how do I associate an icon with the shortcut link on the desktop and also modify the link from the launcher menu on top of the screen under applications-->internet. Its also not clear how to remove icons from these menus (unlike those on the bar that have an option). How does one uninstall firefox 3.05 and make this 3.5 the default for all users (unlike what I did just now)
answers to these basic GUI queries welcome..
