When I encounter a particularly vexing problem like this, I've
sometimes used 'strace' to hunt down what the program is doing, and fix
it. Make sure to use the '-o' option to save the output to a file -- it
will be large. Then search through it for ENOENT, or for dlopen().
strace may not solve your problem, but it's worth a try. On my Fedora
system, 'firefox' is a shell script, so it wouldn't do me much good to
'strace' it. I'd need to trace the executable that the script launches.
