I upgraded to Firefox 8.0.1 on my Debian Lenny box and now Firefox won't start at all.

I downloaded the installer in /var/username/Desktop, extracted it to /usr/local and created a symbolic link to /usr/bin/firefox.

After that, if I type Firefox from the home directory it gives me the following message:

-bash: /usr/bin/firefox: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong here?
