I assume you installed it in /usr/local? Normal users do not have write permissions in those directories (and they shouldn't). For some reason, when Mozilla is first launched it has to write files to the base install directory. If you run it as a normal user it can't do that. I think if you run it once as root though, you ought to be able to run it as a regular user after that . . .

This is still a bug I think. :)
