Hey Group;

Based on a desktop icon after a zypper dup to M6 firefox is no longer
found. It was /use/bin/firefox which is not linked or a script.
Click on the icon and nothing happens


Could it be this?: http://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=600222

try running firefox in a terminal and watch for errors.

Well if I had not created the script or link to /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin (no firefox.sh was available). It would have not worked in a terminal. "which firefox" showed blank. So no firefox was in any "/bin" or "/sbin" directory or user $PATH

It looks like zypper dup removed /usr/bin/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox/firefox.sh. Then RPM upgraded mozilla-firefox without creating a new binary/script or link to /usr/lib/firefox

openSuSE may have changed the name to something else and I am looking in the wrong spot
