I was going throug mozillas dir and found this in the config.ini at the end...

Filename=mozilla-bin
; *** LOCALIZE ME BABY ***
Message=An older installation of Mozilla was detected. Please choose to delete the directory contents of your current Mozilla installation by pressing the 'Delete' button. Alternatively, please press the 'Cancel' button and choose a different destination directory.
root@Linux-Powered:~/mozilla-1.6/mozilla-installer#

How do i remove the old one? Would it be the mozilla-config in /usr/bin/mozilla?

Ok, i was upgrading my gtk+. glib. pango, and atk. I get this error when trying to update the gtk+...

checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1... Package atk was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `atk.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'atk' found

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
root@Linux-Powered:~/gtk+-2.2.4# cd /root

How do i adust the path?

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig

Why do you need to install these things? If you already had Mozilla working surely they were already installed? Going back to your first post, when you got
Code:
root@Linux-Powered:~/mozilla-1.6# mozilla
-bash: mozilla: command not found
did you try ./mozilla or sh mozilla?

Ok, i got it to work now. I am not to sure how i did it either. All i did was upgrade to 2.6.2 kernel and now it works. There is one issue still with mozilla though. Every time i launch mozilla it does't maximize automatically. It's only half of the screen and i have to max. every time i launch it. Is there a way to set it so when i launch it it will be max. automaticlly?
