For some reason I could not locate the library when I tried it
earlier. This time I did find it (Murphy rulz!). It wants the
directory of the library, not the library itself, so you want to put
/usr/lib/firefox/ into the field. For the browser, it wants the fully
qualified path and file name, e.g. /usr/bin/firefox.
