firefox 1.5 and mozilla problems


Hi everyone

I am using Firefox 1.5 on Red Hat 9.0
Sometimes I need to open both firefox and mozilla browser.
But when I try to open mozilla after i have already opened firefox,I get another instance of Firefox instead of mozilla.
Mozilla opens only when I have opened it before Firefox.
Plz suggest a sloution

Also I would like to know , is there a way by which I can get to know that somebody has replied to my post/question via email.I mean is this facility available in LinuxQuestions.org

Thanks in advance

To make sure you get automatic email notification, click on "Edit options" in the "My LQ" menu on the right and go through the settings.
Mozilla Firefox is Mozilla, just the newer one on your machine, probably why it's defaults are the default when it is being used. What is the big difference between them that you have to use the older version?. You can probably install plug-ins for Mozilla Firefox that will enable features you have in Mozilla.

You could try running it from a commandline:
mozilla

How many profiles do you have? You might need to create one for each browser.

I never had a problem of running both at the same time, but I use Debian. Could this possibly be a symlink to FF from the mozilla executable?
