Just found this:

Not much else there.
Also, just tried my firefox launcher on my Ubuntu 7.04, and it's the same
problem: swiftfox starts instead of firefox.  I never would have known about
that since I use swiftfox exclusively now.  What's interesting is that you
say you were able to use both _simultaneously_ (ie you could have firefox
and swiftfox open at the same time right?).  I was going to suggest making
sure all swiftfox windows were closed before starting firefox, but that
probably won't help if it worked before.

Personally, I'm fine with just using swiftfox, but I'll be interested to see
how this thread turns out.

Good luck,
