    In addition to Malcolm asking which add-on you're trying to install, which
    version of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) are you using and what
    version of Mozilla Firefox?

    HTH.

    This might be your problem. Firefox 3.0 is very old, it is possible that the add ons you are trying to use are not compatible with Firefox 3.0. I just downloaded a copy of Firefox 3.0.18 and was able to add the Live HTTP Headers add-on though. You could try quitting Firefox, rename your ~/.mozilla and then start Firefox and see if add-ons now work.

    SLED 11.0 went End Of Life in October 2010. I strongly recommend that you update to SLED 11 SP2. For details of how to update see http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7010200 Note that you have to update to SP1 then to SP2.

    tar is an archive format. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tar_%28computing%29 As such you do not install tar files, you simply unpack them. Once unpacked you can run whatever is inside.

    Any way i will update. thanks.
    When you update you will get a new, supported, version of Firefox included. So don't worry about trying to manually download a newer version of Firefox, just get the machine updated and Firefox will be taken care of as part of that.

    If you double click it it should open in File Roller which has a button marked 'Extract'.

    Or at the command line run

    Code:
    $ tar xfv whatever.tar.gz
