Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

the upgrade from firefox 3.6.13 to 3.6.14 didn't succed because the default command (in the main menu) to start firefox is
/user/bin/firefox meanwhile the executable (in the last releases of firefox) is /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.xx/firefox.sh.
The problem is solved creating a link from /usr/bin/firefox to the executable in /user/lib/.......

This isn't an Ubuntu bug, your install has been broken by using Ubuntuzilla in the past, which diverted /usr/bin/firefox away. Please report your bug to them instead, we can't do anything about third party packages breaking your system

This bug was fixed in the package firefox - 4.0~b12+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu2

---------------
firefox (4.0~b12+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu2) natty; urgency=low

  * Fix some typos in the manpage
    - update debian/firefox.1.in
  * Fix up the mess left by Ubuntuzilla rather than leaving our official
    package in a broken and inconsistent state, which ends up with users
    reporting bugs to Launchpad and giving us a bad reputation. If
    /usr/bin/firefox has been diverted and there is no /usr/bin/firefox
    provided on the system, just do the job of whatever package it was that
    broke the users install and remove the diversion for them. This should
    hopefully stop the frequently reported bugs we get from Ubuntuzilla users
    about /usr/bin/firefox being missing
    - update debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - Fixes LP: #512937, LP: #529136, LP: #552919, LP: #572733, LP: #574111,

  * Don't allow users to report bugs with apport-bug when /usr/bin/firefox
    has been diverted
    - update debian/firefox.py.in
  * Don't build with --disable-elfhack on armel. It's been fixed now
    - update debian/rules
