I am trying to locate where Firefox is installed while logged in as su.
The command '/usr/bin/locate firefox' shows the following message:

-bash /usr/bin/locate: no such file or directory

You don't have locate installed, or its not in that directory.

You can try just running locate and it will find it in the path if its there, or you can run whereis locate and it will tell you where it is installed.
