RE: ps aux



That is the thing, the machine is my web browser
and I was just wondering why is there a firefox process
but as you said then the firefox executable is not running but
why is the mozila.sh running?

Thanks,

This means that the sh process calls the mozilla.sh script. However 
there should be another process which is the actually binary running 
itself. In my system for example:

[georgios slartibartfast xsltmodule]$ ps aux | grep firefox | grep -v grep
georgios 26071  0.0  0.0 105580  1300 ?        S    17:07   0:00 /bin/sh 
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/run-mozilla.sh /usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/firefox
georgios 26086  6.4  1.0 751968 86940 ?        Rl   17:07   0:13 
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.5/firefox

The latter is the actual binary running.

Why? You do not see the Firefox window?
