I just upgraded to Mozilla 1.5b (Red Hat 9) and had some trouble getting it started. Whenever I typed 'mozilla', nothing would happen (as root or a regular user). After reading 'mozilla --help', I tried 'mozilla --g-fatal-warnings' hoping to see what the problem was and it just ended up working (with no fatal warnings after I closed). This is the only way I can get mozilla to work... anyone know why?

The reason is that there's no link to mozilla at /usr/bin. Try removing the old mozilla (if you already did, ignore it) and install the new one 1.5b.
I believe that by default, mozilla will be installed at /usr/local/mozilla. Go into that folder and type:


If it works, then the only think you have to do is to create a symbolic link to your /usr/bin (ln -s) and you will be able to run the new mozilla typing mozilla at the terminal.

If you don't know where mozilla is installed, use "locate mozilla" and you may find it.

Good luck!
