Fedora 2 and 3 and redhat8 don't install browser by default


I've installed Fedora 2 and Fedora 3 and Red Hat 9 and on each one
the browser icon next to the red hat in the taskbar
has caused an error.

The current error in Fedora3 is:
"ERROR: The browser firefox does not exist. Please reconfigure."

The error in redhat 9 is:
"Cannot launch icon. Details: Failed to execute child process "mozilla" (No such file or directory)"

Here is a screen shot:

I have installed Suse Linux at least 5 times and all desktop browser icons
have worked. Is this a bug in Redhat/Fedora in general or am I doing something wrong in ALL the installations (I basically choose all defaults, next, next, next).

THanks.
