Hey John.  In the directory where you did the tar command, try this:

  ls -alF

Let us know what it says.  Likely, it created a directory named
"firefox-1.0" or something.  "cd" into that directory and run the "ls"
command there too.

What distribution of Linux are you running?  Redhat, SuSE, Debian, ...

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
