    As root, type:
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/bin/firefox <location of Firefox executable>

    I tried that but got a message telling me the file already existed. But I looked at the manpage for ln and realized that they need to be the other direction:

    Code:
    ln -s <location of firefox executable> /usr/bin/firefox
    works!

    Thanks so much for all the help! I know it isn't a huge thing but every learning opportunity is great.

    Man, I apologise for that slip-up. But well done for working it out yourself!
