    ok, so is this 4 results of 4 different Firefox file locations. Just curious.

    Code:
    michael@michael-HP-EliteDesk-800-G1-SFF:~$ whereis firefox
    firefox: /usr/bin/firefox /usr/lib/firefox /etc/firefox /usr/share/man/man1/firefox.1.gz
    michael@michael-HP-EliteDesk-800-G1-SFF:~$

    ok, thanks.
    I have also discovered that "system monitor" will reveal the path if you scroll over the name of the "processes"

    The first result of "whereis" is usually the binary/executable.
