Mozilla


hi

This is where mozilla is installed in redhat version 5

/root(home)/.mozilla/firefox/v88at3zx.default/extensions/

In other version mozilla is present at

/root/.mozilla/@@/@@@@@

Till /root/.mozilla is true for all versions but the later directories are different .Is there any way to find out the compete path of mozilla dynamically.I do not wish to hard code the path.

Thankx in advance

First, /root/.mozilla...etc is only the config files (user specific). The program (firefox) is somewhere else---/usr/bin on my system.

Beyond this, I don't understand your question. What exactly are you trying to do?

You can use

whereis mozilla

to find out the particulars.

By the way, why are you running firefox from the root account? That seems less than desirable. On my system, mozilla is /usr/lib/mozilla.
