You need to go through the places where the install process placed files and manually remove those using rm -rf or something similar. (be careful with rm -rf -- it's trivially easy to render your system completely useless by being careless with that command)

Not sure on Gentoo specifically, but in general, no. Debian, for example, has the following:

Code:
M3:/usr/src/linux# find / -name mozilla
/usr/bin/mozilla
/usr/share/doc/mozilla
/usr/doc/mozilla
/usr/lib/mozilla
/etc/alternatives/mozilla
/etc/mozilla
/var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/mozilla
/var/lib/mozilla


There can also be individual .mozilla config files in home directories as well.
