I have Fedora Core 1 and ive been using Mozilla 1.4.1-18.
Just the other day, I clicked on the Mozilla shortcut (Gnome foot/Internet/Mozilla Web Browser) and it would not boot at all. I went into /usr/bin/ and tried to execute the 'mozilla' file manually. It gave me a 'Bus Error' message.
I then went into /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/ and executed 'mozilla-bin'. The first time i did this, it worked, and the shortcut then worked as well. When i closed them and just tried the link, it wouldnt work again. Also, anytime i try the 'mozilla-bin' file now, i get the 'Bus Error' message again.
The only thing ive added in the past couple days was the Mozilla Flash 6 plugin. I copied the 2 files into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. I then noticed that there was a /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/plugins dir as well. Still being a linux noob, i didnt know which one it would look at, so i copied them there as well. The only other thing i did was try to ./configure gXine, but I was missing libXaw, so i was unable to 'make' anything.
Try removing the Mozilla Flash 6 plugin. If that does not work then try reinstalling Mozilla. When you remove the old Mozilla also delete the /home/user/.mozilla tree. That is where your Mozilla configuration info is kept.

When you want a program to be in two different locations use symbolic links to point the second location to the first. See man ln.
