    Type:
    [code]
    rpm -qa | grep mozilla
    [code]
    This will query the rpm database and paste any installed apps with the words mozilla in them to your screen.

    To uninstall it: use : rpm -e <packagename>
    To install it, use: rpm -Uvh <packagename.rpm>

    For more info on how to use rpm: click here

    Why the -U
    Reason: This is the Upgrade installation, if have an older version installed, it will remove the old installed app and install the newer. This will prevent you from 'downgrading' installed apps.

    You can try
    redhat-config-packages
    It is interactive, and it will ask for the correct cd.
    Hope you have the install disks.
    You are the one Linux!

    If mozilla is not working first try
    rm -rf ~/.mozilla/
    From a shell

    In redhat-config-packages click details of Graphical Internet under Applications section.

    Now UNCHECK mozilla - A web based browser. option, close the window and click "Update".

    You'll be presented with the DEPENDENT applications (if any) Uncheck all of them and then UPDATE.

    Now your System does NOT have Mozilla.

    Now again CHECK mozilla - A web based browser. and it's dependent applications (if necessary) and UPDATE.

    You are done with Re-Installation of Mozilla
