Why is /usr/downloads your downloads folder? Why not something like /home/Sharma/Downloads? – user25656 Jul 23 '12 at 17:14
Isn't the same version available through Normal Ubuntu Updates. – atenz Jul 23 '12 at 17:24 If anyone wants to give it a try. – Mateo Aug 10 '12 at 22:22

double click it and extract it using file-roller.

alternatively, in terminal:

bunzip2 firefox.tar.bz2
tar xf firefox.tar
