Open a terminal and type mozilla. If mozilla launches ok the shortcut is corrupt, however in your case the message does state that mozilla can not be found.

What distribution are you using? You may be able to reinstall mozilla from the install cd or dvd to get this back.

What distribution are you using?
you can get the Mozilla package using your distro's package manager,
and by that, not having any "missing executable" problems.

i guess you downloaded it from mozilla.com?
