Thank you Mike, that's what was wanted.

The about:config entry referred to '/usr/lib/firefox-3.0.1/firefox.sh' 
whereas firefox.sh is found at /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.3 There is no 
firefox-3.0.1 directory in /usr/lib). Changing the about:config entry to 
firefox-3.0.3 has solved the problem.

The "firefox.sh" script is described as as a firefox launcher containing 
a profile helper for temporary profiles during alpha and beta phases. 
Probably changing the about:config entry to just "firefox" would have 
done as well?

Regards and many thanks again
