Acer Aspire one FireFox Update

I have just updated firefox using the Check for Update option. The update installed and said restart to complete. Restarted and now the Browser Button does not start Firefox. How do I get my browser back?

Hi and Welcome to LinuxQuestions!
An important thing to learn is that the more information you give the easier and quicker it will be to get a solution to your problem. You give very very little information. What distro are you using? What version of Firefox do you now have? Open a terminal and type in this command
which firefox
Can you post the output the above command gives.

What distribution are you using? Have you tried running firefox from the command line and checking what kind of warnings and errors it is throwing? Run "firefox" from a terminal, and post the output (the errors and warnings) using code tags, thanks!
