Quicklauncher web browser icon won't open in xfce, fc3

How do i get a web browser to start up when i've got xfce as the light gui on fedora c3?

it's started up before i'm sure when i've opened up an html file directly to view it- open with application- but the quick launcher web browser icon on the sytem tray at the bottom won't open the mozilla browser giving the following error message-


failed to execute child process mozilla (no such file or directory)

how do i enable firefox with xfce OR maybe there is a command line option i can use instead to open the browser

thanks alot mate.

i'm just learning.

i didn't realise i had to configure the gui and i did'nt realise i could right click like that to config.

smart. i like it!

this is my first proper/serious linux install where i've got a dedicated separate machine for learning instead of a dual boot win. set-up . i'm learning how to set up a server to host a domain i bought recently a for a web site i've built. the website requires updating weekly though.

your help is very much appreciated mate.

thanks alot!! i mean that. you're the man!
