More confused now. I installed the file I downloaded into /opt/firefox.
I run /opt/firefox/firefox and ask for help firefox. It says this is
i686 (x86_64). But, if I ask "file /opt/firefox/firefox-bin" it says
"ELF 32 bit".

cer@nimrodel:~> which firefox
/usr/bin/firefox
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I rebuilt the link in /usr/bin/firefox to point at my newly installed
/opt/firefox/firefox.

I also ran the thing from the command line directly as "/opt/firefox/firefox"
to be sure.

But regardless, when I ask firefox for help->about, it says it's 64bit.

One thought that occurred to me is that in Yast, I found a mozilla runtime
already installed. Presumably that's 64bit too, but if I tried to delete it, I
got hundreds of dependency complaints, so I left it in place.

Thanks again for any more pointers.
Cheers,
Simon
