bashrc and firefox


quick question about the firefox command, when installed via synaptic firefox was a command to run firefox, i had lots of trouble updating to 1.0.6 so i completely wiped everything firefox and used the mozilla.org firefox-installer.. i installed it to ~/.mozilla/firefox, i was wondering how to get firefox back as a command. i think it has to do with .bashrc..

symlink the executable into your PATH is the best way to go, but you can put in your .bashrc
alias firefox ~/.mozilla/firefox/MozillaFirefox
it seems problematic to install something in a configuration hidden directory, becasue your program could easily be overwritten.

I kinda wondered about that myself, but I gennerally figured that all IRC servers known to exist would be on the list anyway. I personally use Xchat.
