Upgrade Firefox 3.0 On Ubuntu Gave An Error

When I upgraded my Firefox to the full 3.0 on Ubuntu 8.04 it started giving me an error when starting. If I started the Firefox 3 from a folder on the desktop it would start fine. So I figured it was an extention or cache problem. To solve my problem I decided to rename the firefox folder under /opt and copy the working firefox to /opt/firefox. It worked.

First I renamed the firefox folder in opt:

In the opt folder from a terminal I typed:

sudo mv firefox oldfirefox

Then I copied the working folder from my Desktop to opt:

sudo cp -a /home/steve/Desktop/firefox /opt/
