firefox-37, where to put

Greetings all;

Iceweasel commited suicide when I was asked by my bank to delete its 
history, so now all I get is a blank terminal screen that is using 100% 
of a cpu core until I kill it as root.  A total purge and reinstall 
didn't fix it.

Chromium seems incapable of performing an online credit card transaction. 
And crashes anytime I go to abcnews.go.com

So I just dl'd firefox-37 tarball for 64 bit linux and unpacked it into 
my home dirs bin subdir.  But thats likely not going to be great as it 
probably looks someplace else for its libraries & such.

So where is the std place it would normally live?  If it can still find 
the old iceweasel password cache, that would be a huge plus.

Thanks all.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
