It's probably misspelt and something on your disk was eaten by a GRUE. 

Try "sudo xulrunner --register-global", because somehow firefox believes
that it cannot find a working xulrunner instance on your machine.

Do that *after* you checked that firefox and xulrunner are updated to
the latest versions:

[angenenr at shutdown ~]$rpm -q firefox xulrunner
firefox-3.0.5-1.el5.centos.x86_64
xulrunner-1.9.0.5-1.el5.x86_64
[angenenr at shutdown ~]$

Cheers,

Ralph

PS:  A GRE really isn't as fearsome as a GRUE is, a GRE is just the Gecko
     Runtime Environment.
