Hi Kris,
Thanks for the help.

[mwh at pcbsd]/home/mwh/Downloads(100)% chmod 755 Firefox*
[mwh at pcbsd]/home/mwh/Downloads(101)% ./Firefox*.pbi
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display ":0.0".
kdesu(6034) KLocalePrivate::initEncoding: Cannot resolve system encoding, defaulting to ISO 8859-1.
Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display ":0.0".
[at this point a dialog box came up asking for my password, which I entered]
Rebuilding menu database...Done!

It seems to have installed, but when I started up Firefox from the application menu a dialog box came up with the message:
'PC-BSD encountered an error while trying to start /bin/firefox3.sh'. I've attached the details file.

Thanks again.

Cheers,
 Mark
