Because you mentioned QupZilla, an outdated browser, since QupZilla was
renamed to Falkon, but at the same time you mention the latest release
of Firefox I'm curious, so I used your distro's package search.
it seems to be, that official repositories of your distro do not provide
Firefox 59.0.2.

Perhaps you are using a third party thingy, installing the executable to
e.g. /opt or /usr/lib/foo or similar? The location might be not part of
PATH, but the desktop file might execute Firefox via the path or by a
different named launcher.

IOW what do you get, if you try to start Firefox from command line
without a path?

Just run


from command line.
