Unhappy FC1 Firefox and ThunderBird Troubles

I've installed Firefox and Thunderbird, but I can't find the file for them! I need to know the file so I can put it on the menu. Thanks.

You need to find their executables (you entered the directory during installation, the executable is just in that dir). If you don't remember, run 'locate firefox' to find firefox (if you have current locate database) or 'find / -name firefox 2>/dev/null' (this one takes much more time, it searches the whole disk, all errors like permission problems are removed from the output)
