Question Can't find package Red Hat Update Agent installed

I just downloaded a new version of Mozilla - v.1.0.1-26 trough the red hat network update agent. The package was successfully installed and everything. However, when I click on the browser icon on the desktop panel the old mozilla version still pops up. I can't find the new one. Does anyone know where it is installed?

It probably doesn't overwrite the old version. Try
"whereis mozilla"

To find all the locations of the mozilla programs.

If I were you I'd upgrade to Mozilla 1.3 now.

I will try that command. No, the old mozilla is still in place that's the reason for my question. Where is the new mozilla - ?

What I would suggest to do is go here and download all the packages for Mozilla 1.3 into one directory. Then do:

rpm -Uvh mozilla*

and it should update you to Mozilla 1.3 . It seems that the update agent keeps the old Mozilla directories around for some reason. What I did was first remove all of the older Mozilla rpm packages, remove there directories, and then install the new Mozilla rpms. That way there is no trace of Mozilla 1.1 .
