Have a look at the Preferences for FF (Right-click on the FF icon) and
see if the path to FF is correctly set. (The default path for FF is
/usr/bin/firefox which is a symlink to where FF actually resides; if
necessary alter this symlink to point to the new location of firefox.sh.)
Fact is that which enough people believe. Truth is determined by how fervently they believe it.
