Hmm... What is the path you're indicating to mozilla and how are you indicating it? Mozilla is (for me and I think by default likes to be) installed in /usr/local/mozilla. There was some old mozilla-1.0.1 stuff around that I deleted. (That's when I found out how to change all this! )

This is what I have in the Gnome file:

default-show=/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla -P default "%s"

This is the path in my shortcut to Mozilla:

/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla -P default

Hope this helps

P.S.: I went an took a peek and I'm running the "mozilla" script, _not_ the "" script. Try that one. I think you'll have better luck. (don't ask me why though! )

mozilla does not come with flashplayer, you need to download separately.

I don't have a mozilla script in /usr/bin
Can I just make one and add that code to file???

as well is it possible for there to be only one profile but it not be the default. because I put the -P default "%s" at on the default-show and it did nothing.

No, not the one in /usr/bin. It should be in mozilla directory itself. /usr/local/mozilla or somthing like that. So the full path to the script should be /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla. I'm not too sure about the other script as I had problems with it too so I didn't bother fiddling with it.

As for the profiles.... There is always a default profile called default. I don't think you are even allowed to delete that one but I may be wrong. If you've created another profile, substitute that for 'default.' You can check your profiles by going to Tools > Profile in Mozilla.

I just got done upgrading mozilla from the version on the Redhat 8.0 CD to 1.3.1, here is what I did that worked.

unistalled galleion and all mozilla components with then command "rpm -e"

it actually took four instances of this command for all the components to be removed. Galleion, Mozailla, Mozilla Mail etc...

Mozilla was installed in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.1 or somthing like that the mostly empty directory is still there after the rpm -e commands

I renamed the mozilla-1.0.1 directory to mozilla-1.3.1

as root ran the mozilla installer, installing into that directory

Working in the mozilla-1.3.1 directory, I created a link of the "mozilla" file and copied it to /usr/bin

lastly in "/usr/bin" I renamed "link to mozilla" to "mozilla"

this seems to be working well for me!

man gnome-moz-remote

there is a good manual entry on gnome-moz-remote to configure the default browser, for programs (ie evolution) who utilise gnome-moz-remote..

just ended up while trying to get it to STOP opening up mozilla - I use galeon, and having 3 or 4 different browsers pop up is somewhat of an annoyance
