Question How do I know where Mozilla is installed?

I am trying to install flash plugin for Mozilla.
During installation flash asks me what directory mozilla is located in.
How do I determine where it is?

Try typing:
locate mozilla | grep /plugins
This will give you the location of your plugins directory.
It will probably be /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
I hope this helps

From rpm install, you can find where the installed files are located by:

rpm -ql mozilla
