Ok, here is a Question.

Winblows allows you to create a shortcut to a internet website.

Can you do something like that with Fedora 15 and Firefox?

I use GoToMyPC because of IP address conflict using cablenone,... and a shortcut would be very helpful.

    Firefox accepts URLs as an options, you could just create a launcher :)

    Go into a terminal and give us the output of:
    uname- a
    If you just installed default desktop in Fedora 15, it's probably gnome shell.

    I'm sorry, that command was wrong. Unless you specifically changed the default install to use KDE and not Gnome, your probably using Gnome. One quick way is to look at the desktop. Default KDE has it's panel and icons on the bottom of the screen, Gnome3 has its panel and icons on the top. I'm sorry but at work I can't post screenshots, they're on my computer at home.

    Here is a screen shot of what I see... I don't have icons at the top or at the bottom.
