Howto remove firefox from opt

I have new firefox in opt in filesystem. Tried to remove it with
sudo rm -f filename but the filenames i have tried do not work.
Excuse 1-3: I am a newbie lol
When I try to remove the file in filesystem the move to trash is grayed out.
Can someone enlighten me on the correct file name.
I used /filesystem/opt/firefox

/opt/firefox would be the right path. There is nothing like /filesystem in most Unix systems.
