sys. monitor also dont show instance of firefox .
What do you mean and close?

can you open a terminal and type:

/usr/bin/firefox &

have you looked at output from ps? Has this ever worked?

Please see the above reply edited.

The output of /usr/bin/firefox & on terminal is this :->

[root@mak_mailbox ~]# /usr/bin/firefox &

No, the output from "ps aux" not from the command to launch How about killall firefox, then try to start again.

No instance of firefox remains in sys monitor , so no use of firing ps command after launcing from firefox icon from panel.

Also as I mentioned in start that, this seems to be generic problem in RHEL5 settings, as the same problem is coming for evince application.

i can email you the outputs of ps aux if you want..
avoiding pasting that here..
thanks for folowup.
I am avoiding to reinstall firefox and evince, so posting here.
thanks again for the followup ...
