If I make a [red]#ln -s ~/firefox_installer/firefox.sh /usr/bin/firefox[/red] then when I try run firefox on the command line its like isnt exists...

if I make a [red]#ln ~/firefox.../firefox.sh /usr/bin/firefox[/red] then when I try to run firefox on the commmand line it returns an error saying that Its not possible to localizate some Lib and files

but I can run the firefox.sh with no problem from the original path ... so Im thinking how can I make a link that works and that execute the file on its original directory
