Default Many bugs: pdf, Thunderbird, Firefox, goes knows.

Some people seem to have problems opening pdf documents with Fedora
12, but my problem is slightly different.

Until 2 updates ago, everything was fine, but now, if I click a pdf
file at Google's, it downloads but doesn't open I click Tools,
Downloads the click the pdf file.

That's not all. If I click a URL*in Thunderbird, it doesn't open. I've
got to right click it, then choose Copy, then I'm asked if I want to
open it in the browser, I click Firefox, it opens.

So, I've sent me a message with a URL. When I click it, I receive the
following message:

"Could not open the link.
(This can be copy/pasted)

"Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib64/firefox-3.5.6/firefox"
(No such file or directory). Of course, I*have 3.5.8 installed."
(This part of the error message cannot be copy/pasted. What's the
fundamental reason for this?)

Maybe if I could redirect the system to the right copy of Firefox, it
would solve all problems? How is this done?

I must admit I've seen the little red rat appear quite often lately in
the top panel. I try not to care too much about it, but it seems there
are consequences.

10 days ago, one copy of Firefox after another started opening. I
jumped on the modem switch. Then, ALT-F4 couldn't stop the number of
open windows from increasing. I rebooted, but the reboot process
didn't work:*the screen went black before the boot screen and
everything stopped there with the HD*emitting loud clicks.

I*went into the BIOS and noticed pretty much every option -- by this I
mean even the failsafe option -- had been grayed out. Tried to reboot
in vain. Went back to the BIOS*and saved the options available before
quitting. The system booted fine.

I'll have to check the BIOS*<=> CMOS*option to reload the defaults. Or
I'll just remove the battery.

Just checking: did you quit your firefox and restart after the update?
This may solve most of your problems, if not.

Little red rat? I don't have anything of that sort here: I confess I am
using the LXDE spin, though.

What exactly is this system and its specs?
