Thanks for the reply, Goo.
Right clicking the firefox panel button and selecting
"configure Firefox web browser button" I find under
general tab, location= /usr/share/application, and
under the application tab, command= firefox %u. But
that doesn't solve anything. If I click the panel icon
or select "Firefox web browser" from the K(de)
menu>internet, I immediately get another instance of
swiftfox in the "center-applications loaded panel
window" along with a "loading firefox buzy revolving
icon". The busy icon just goes away shortly leaving
two copies of swiftfox and no firefox. Just checked
again, and now, even in a konsole terminal typing
"firefox" just loads another instance of swiftfox.
Hope this is more clear than the original post. Just
recently everything was loading normally from panel
