How has it stopped working? Where do you invoke it - kde/gnome menu/taskbar? Do you get any error messages? What happens if you run it from the console? Does it give any error messages then? What did you install just before it stopped working? Did you change any permissions? Did you run apt-get or yum (it may have been uninstalled by them)?

Open a terminal and type in mozilla and hit enter. All messages will appear in the console. Then copy/paste here.

Try reinstalling it - either by rpm or with yum.

You are not the first to do this and I'm very sure that you won't be the last. Glad you got it working.
