According to Havoc, firefox and thunderbird must be added for FC3/RHEL4 target. I am now rushing to build them into rawhide. Your assistance in testing and analysis would be greatly appreciated.

Does this create an icon anywhere and if not, what is needed to start
it?  Will it conflict with mozilla itself if it's installed?


If you are running FC1 or FC2, install firefox or thunderbird from Extras stable. Those show you exactly how it would work in FC3. Nice looking icons for firefox and thunderbird are dropped into the Internet menu. And you can use the Preferred Applications dialog to choose firefox and thunderbird as your chosen apps. The Preferred Application thing works very well on FC2 and FC3, but FC1 has problems. Legacy may want to consider doing simple changes to control-center and gnome-vfs2 to bring FC1's Preferred Applications capability to par with FC2 and FC3. That would be their call.
