Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser.

Windows installation is straight-foward. Once the file has been downloaded just double-click on it and install it like you would any other Windows application.
Once the copy of Firefox has been downloaded you will have to uncompress it.
tar -zxvf firefox.tar.gz
Normally there will be a lot of version numbers before the '.tar.gz'. In Linux you don't have to type them out. Just type
tar -zxvf firefox
followed immediately by the tab key, this will use the auto-complete feature of the Linux command line.
Once the file has been uncompressed go into the new directory.
