This depends on how it will be used.  If it's only you, stick it in
your home directory (~/firefox or some such directory).  If it needs
to be accessed by multiple users on a shared system, /opt/firefox or
/usr/local/firefox would be reasonable locations.

This is fairly normal and likely nothing to worry about.  I'm not sure
what this particular warning is, but this type of warning is common
when running a gtk app from the cli.
