Did you uninstall the old one? It's possible you left the old one on and it's in, say, /usr/bin, while your new one went to /usr/local/bin. So it's likely the old one gets fired up.

Have you checked what mozilla is referring to?
which mozilla
Mine was referring to /usr/bin/mozilla so I did mv /usr/bin/mozilla /usr/bin/mozilla.old and created a link ln -s /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla /usr/bin/mozilla
substitute whatever your paths are
