Put it in (of course :))

# mount /cdrom

I don't know how the DVD is formatted, I'm guessing its in standard
cd9660 filesystem, in which case the above command will 'just work'.
Then its a case of finding the mozilla package on the disc.

# find /cdrom -name "*mozilla*.tgz"

That should get it. Lastly just pkg_add -v with the resulting path
from `find'. Hopefully, you should have a working Mozilla by the end
of that :)
