You can use:

find [whatever] -exec rm -rf '{}' \;


find [whatever] | xargs rm -rf

Usually, the answer to your question would be: use xargs or put the second command between apostrophes. Something like:

vi `which mozilla`

I think if you use rm -rf `find [whatever]` it might work..

DON'T use these lines unless you're absolutely sure your find will return exactly what you want.. rm -rf is the most destructive Unix command, so if you don't know what you're doing, maybe you should wait a couple of months until you do. :)

Read the man pages for rm, find and xargs so you can understand this.
