expat was installed.

What is strange: there are 2 shell scrips named firefox; one in /usr/bin
and one in /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/ both from rpm package
firefox-1.0.7-1.1.fc4

I moved the one in /usr/bin to another name and made a symlink to the
one in /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/ and now it's working.

Who could explain this?

Thank you
