Ok, that's for the version that came with Fedora, but the newer version I manually installed cannot be *shortcuted*...


sounds like you installed the tarball from Mozilla.org. open a terminal and do a whereis for firefox.

whereis firefox [ENTER]


That will yield information similar to this:

[mdw1982 ws1 ~]$ whereis firefox
firefox: /usr/bin/firefox /usr/share/man/man1/firefox.1.gz

In your case you'll see "two" locations given because the tarball installer typically installs the binaries to /usr/local/<app_name>/<app_binary>
