Try this:

`apt-get install mozilla-firefox`

it'll install an older version of Firefox (1.0.7 I think) but, more importantly, it'll install all of the peripheral libs you'll need for the current version of Firefox.

No good deed goes unpunished...

I have DSL installed to my hard disk.
I tried upgrading to firefox 1.5. I followed the instructions and apparently it installed in /home/dsl, but I can't get it to work. I probably destroyed the original link to firefox in the process.

I followed your instructions and loaded apt, I get a connection and a succesful installation.

When I tried `apt-get install mozilla-firefox`  I get error:

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package mozilla-firefox

Any ideas?
