Mozilla distributes statically linked tarballs of Firefox.  You can untar one 
of these on your desktop and run it from there.  Can't run 2 Firefoxes on the 
same profile at the same time though, of course.  So if you don't specify a 
second profile, and 1 FF is already running, it'll just open a new window of 
the old one.
