default web browser in fedora 4


In order to install firefox 1.0.7 I uninstalled the default firefox comming with fedora 4. I made firefox the default web browser by writing the command in custim text box. But whenever I want to open a link from other places like gaim only firefox opens in my home page. I want when firefox opens, it opens in the page of the link. Is there anything which I can add to this command in command box in preferred application?

/usr/local/firefox-installer/firefox

Isn't the current Firefox in FC4 Firefox 1.0.7?

I'm pretty sure it was already 1.0.7

Also, yum automatically installs packages in Fedora. In a command line, type something like:

Code:
yum update firefox
Or download yum extender from wherever it is. Then search for Firefox, you might even get 1.5.
