Based on a desktop icon after a zypper dup to M6 firefox is no longer

Click on the icon and nothing happens

Could it be this?:

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 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/ 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

No. On Factory you should have mozilla-xulrunner192 and MozillaFirefox
RPM packages installed. And the latter should contain everything to be
able to start "firefox".

rpm -V MozillaFirefox to check what RPM has to say about it?
