mozilla-firefox issues

I used the 0.7 base iso to install a minimal system, and from there I installed some needed desktop util's like xorg and I chose openbox as my windowmanager. When I pacman'd firefox, it installed just fine but I now cannot run firefox, the command is not found. I have tried firefox,mozilla-firefox. I thought it may have just been firefox. I tried installing mozilla, same problem. gaim works. Im asking this because I haven't been able to find anything through search and its a bit hard browsing through links. Any help?

Try this in a terminal: /opt/mozilla/bin/firefox

/opt is not a standard path - when they are installed mozilla etc add a /etc/profile.d file that adds the relevant dirs to $PATH - simply logout and in again to refresh your path and access the binaries

Re: mozilla-firefox issues

Your $PATH probably needs to be updated (because there wasn't an /opt/mozilla before). Log out, log back in, and try it again. Or do what was said above for now.
