Yes, but the point is why are both called firefox-bin ?

I want to see "firefox-bin", when I run the linux emulation,
(therefore -bin) and not, when I run the native firefox.

If I rename firefox-bin to firefox and patch the startup script
everything is fine.
Then top shows, at least "firefox" and not "firefox-bin".
