>>I assume you downloaded firefox, ran the installer, and now you are trying to make a link you can click on to start it?
Yes. I wanted an icon on the desktop so created a duplicate link. When I double click the link it prompt me ""Firefox" is an executable text file. Do you want to run it, or display its contents?" when I choose run it works fine.
>>How did you create the link? What are you doing to activate it? (where/in which program do you click on it) what desktop environment are you running?
Right clicked and picked "make link" and dragged to the desktop. Double clicking the link to run. Enironment - X.
>>Am afraid i need more information to be able to help.
Thanks for the help
