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?:

try running firefox in a terminal and watch for errors.
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".
The RPM during zypper must have dropped MozillaFirefox but first removed things because it was there and the icon set to /usr/bin/firfox/
rpm -V MozillaFirefox to check what RPM has to say about it?
# rpm -V MozillaFirefox
package MozillaFirefox is not installed <- It does seem that answer is found often from a rpm -q report.

rpm -qa | grep MozillaFirefox

As of now - I did download firefox 3.6.3 from and installed it. It is in /usr/lib/firefox allong with and the /usr/binfirefox link to /usr/lib/firefox/ Works great again.
