You got it!!!  I type in "firefox3" in the terminal and the prompt comes right back.

But now when I either select Firefox from the menu or start it from a terminal window nothing happens.  Firefox does not start and there's no indication of any problems.  When I use ps to see if it's hung I see nothing.  Ideas?

what command are you using to start firefox 3? I just installed it for first time and found you have to use the command "firefox3" to get it to run
