dpkg -l mozilla or rpm -ql mozilla or failing all that, use find.

Well, mozilla when installed, creates menu entries in the Start menu.
Goto start menu=>internet=>MOzilla web browser or More internet applications=>Mozilla to run mozilla

or you can run it through terminal by just typing mozilla and pressing enter.
Also the directory /usr/bin contains a shell script called mozilla that can execute mozilla.

If for some reason you need to identify mozilla's path/directory then just use the rpm -ql mozilla command or do a locate mozilla in terminal.

Default mozilla variables on my box are:

MOZ_DIST_BIN="/usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1"
MOZ_PROGRAM="/usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/mozilla-bin"
MOZ_CLIENT_PROGRAM="/usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/mozilla-xremote-client"

So you notice that the /usr/lib contains a directory of the format mozilla-version
