Mozilla Install

Hi -

I installed the new version of mozilla as the root user - as the root, when i click on the mozilla button it opens the new version. when i remove the root authentication and try and use it as a normal user, it opens the old version. how do i make the normal users buttons start the new version?

fist of all, if i were you, i would Un-install the old Mozilla.....

how did you install the new mozilla ?
since you have 2 different versions of mozilla im assuming you did not install via RPM ???

did you download and extract re-compiled binary's ???

anyway, uninstall the old mozilla,

then cd into /bin
