Me too...

$ rpm -q firefox

When I click on the icon (in KDE - I don't do GNOME) I get a new window,
which either starts a new instance of firefox if one does not exist, or
attaches to an existing one with mozilla-xremote-client.  This should be
handled by the shell-script wrapper /usr/bin/firefox.  Where does the
Properties/Application/Command field for the icon point?   (YMMV for
GNOME)  Mine just has "firefox" and "which firefox"
returns /usr/bin/firefox.  Sounds like you may be getting the binary
directly rather than the wrapper script.
