At least under linux, 'firefox' is now a directory in 108.0. For 106.0.5 and many versions prior, it was an executable.

Chosen solution

Solved: User error. This seems to have been caused by first having unpacked an incomplete failed download of 108.0.tar.bz2, then unpacking a completed successful download. To fix my problem, I deleted the quirky unpacked directory, then unpacked the tar.bz2 again.
