There's your problem. Why on earth would you ever want to do that? Some 
researhc project maybe? Or do you need some Flash/ActiveX thingy?

Just install and run the Linux version of firefox on Linux!


Alan's comment aside, you can run it by typing: (no caret of course, and you may need to adjust the path for your specific version.)

People want to run Firefox (or other Linux equiv apps) for various reasons.  For awhile, the dev alias was doing this for exact type of testing to make sure that we "ate our own dogfood".  Before Flash 9 was available on Linux, people installed Windows Firefox to visit sites that required that version of Flash.
