    If you installed it correctly it should be in /usr/lib/. Otherwise look around or search for it, then make a shortcut to it.

    if you downloaded linux version of firefox to your home directory then all you should have to do is.

    Code:
    tar -zxvf firefox-1.5.tar.gz
    cd firefox
    ./firefox
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
