The reason why running graphical applications in a terminal as root won't work is because you have to give permission for your localhost to use your x-session. As your regular user in your terminal window, execute this command:

QUOTE
# xhost +localhost


Then you can su as root and execute the graphical command. Try to run the mozilla installer again and see if that fixes your problem.
