Question Firefox there but not there?


I just installed Slackware 13.1 64b. version, everything seemed to load fine, no faults, no errors, no crashes.

Firefox package installed, but when I try to run it I get:
~/myfiles/firefox_

/usr/lib/firefox-4.0b4/run-mozilla.sh: line 141: /usr/lib/firefox-4.0b4/firefox-bin: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/firefox-4.0b4/run-mozilla.sh: line 141: /usr/lib/firefox-4.0b4/firefox-bin: Success
~/myfiles/_
--------------------
I went to the /usr/lib/firefox-4.0b4 directory and it's there alright:
/usr/lib/firefox-4.0b4/ls -la firefox*_

-rwxr-xr-x root root 4177 firefox
-rwxr-xr-x root root 51400 firefox-bin
--------------------
checked out the run-mozilla.sh file lines 127-144
#######################################################################
moz_run_program()
{
prog=$MOZ_PROGRAM
##
## Make sure the program is executable
##
if [ ! -x "$prog" ]
then
moz_bail "Cannot execute $prog."
fi
##
## Run the program
##
exec "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
exitcode=$?
}
#######################################################################
-----------------
Checked my $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin
-----------------
Ran pkgtool, removed it and then reinstalled it to the same results.
-----------------

Okay now I'm not too sure what I'm doing wrong or what I need to do to fix it. I thought about monkeying around with the run-mozilla.sh file but figured I'd ask what do to first. (Ask twice, type once)

Any guidance would be greatly appreciate

Looks like you installed the 32 bit version of the FF beta. Grab the 64 bit version.
Your first line above indicates you installed 64 bit Slackware.
