Re: Help! Newbie here

There are several places you can do this.

1:

go to your Activities overview, select Applications. You should see the "Add/Remove software icon near the top of the list. (It has an icon that looks like 4 boxes)

2:

open a terminal window, or use ctrl-alt-f2 to open a console
if in a terminal, IF in a console, jusr login as root and run yum install firefox

Code:
su -
(root password)

yum install firefox

Assuming you're using Gnome 3, move your mouse pointer to the top left, select Applications and then select the Add/Remove Software icon.

And welcome to Fedora and the Fedora Forum
