I am running debian linux (etch). I have no problem installing software with apt-get, nor dpkg. Recently I decided to try using a theme for firefox; the "download" link on the website gives me a *.JAR file which seems to be something like a tar ball (google said it's a java-format packaging file); do you know what I need to do with this file? Should I unpack it into my .mozilla directory? Doesn't seem to be any helpful instructions on the mozilla website...

From one of the themes on the Firefox web page:

It seem Firefox Add-Ons site have some problem with Installer engine. To install this Theme, You will need to download the JAR file onto your desktop(Do not choose to open it). Then Drag&Drop the JAR file into the Theme Manager window.

The theme manager under tools has a place for a drag and drop for a theme file, even under Linux.

What theme are you trying to install? Normally it automatically installs.
