You can get Mozilla to start when your Window Manager or Desktop Environment is started. I need to know what DE you are using (KDE, GNOME, etc...).

1) Go to Gnome Menu - Desktop Preferences - Advanced - Sessions
2) Select the "Start Up" programs tab
3) Click "Add", and type the command "mozilla" (Without the quotes) in the command box. Click OK, and your done.

I hope this helps

Please add your Distro to your profile. This makes it easier for us to help you. Also, this thread really belongs in Linux - General, or Linux - Newbie, not General. This helps your thread get better exposure...

Open any programs you want to start when you open KDE. Go to your Settings menu and select "Session"
Select "Start with saved session" and apply it, then go to the K Button and select "Save Session"
