Hello Alvin,

Thanks for reporting this! Appears to be the same on my machine. When did you notice this behavior starting to occur? I don't recall if this was always the case so if you can pinpoint a time for us to look at, that would be great as far as narrowing down what may have happened.

Additionally, are you still on Testing? I am experiencing this with Sid.

Thanks for your feedback!

@Justin K,
hi, i just installed lmde 5 days ago.. it happens all the way
it works fine in gnome's menu, because of the postinst file.

it's only a problem of this package.. iceweasel puts a firefox in /usr/bin. and firefox 3.6.13-1linuxmint1 puts nothing in /usr/bin. with its postinst file, there added some alternative stuffs in x-www-browser and gnome-www-browser.

i don't know what else need to report abut this problem..
i'm now changed to debian testing with some mint's stuffs manully installed. yes iceweasel, no "firefox 3.6.13-1linuxmint1"
