Unhappy Mozilla 1.3 or 1.0 ???

I installed mozilla 1.3 successfully, it is put in /usr/local/mozilla , during installation, it prompts me that old mozilla will be replaced.

After installation, the mozilla 1.3 was launched automatically, and i checked its version, it is 1.3,
when i click the shorcut icon of browser, it lauched mozilla 1.0,
Why? How to fix this ?

Check which mozilla that icon is pointing to. Are you using KDE or GNOME?? I know in KDE that if it's a shortcut icon on the desktop you can right click it, select properties (or something similar), and reset what it's pointing to.

Good Luck

I am not familiar with the directories of the prepackaged mozilla but try browsing around in /usr/local/ and see if you can find 2 different versions.

My guess is 1.3 is installed in /usr/local, while the other is an rpm from redhat/mandrake and installed in /usr.

The icon on the panel that you use to launch the browser points to a script called /usr/bin/htmlview . It searches a set path for a browser. The easiest thing to do is create a link from /usr/bin/mozilla to /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla .

If you don't want to do that, you would have to create a file in your home dir called .htmlviewrc ...
TERMS_KDE="/usr/bin/konsole /usr/bin/kvt"
TERMS_GENERIC="/usr/bin/rxvt /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm /usr/bin/Eterm"
TTYBROWSERS="/usr/bin/links /usr/bin/lynx /usr/bin/w3m"
X11BROWSERS_KDE="/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla /usr/bin/kfmbrowser"
X11BROWSERS_GENERIC="/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla /usr/bin/netscape"
