Try installing FF2 release 1 first. 

Set up FF2 rel 1 as you want it (select a download folder etc using the
Preferences Menu and other things you want different to the standard

Quit Firefox 2 rel 1 from the Menu within Firefox. Find the folder
/mozilla in UnixHome.

Copy this to !Boot.Choices and rename to mozilla (without the leading
slash). I'd do a precautionary reboot, just to be sure.

FF2 Rel 2 *should* now start up properly.
