United dismissed manager Mourinho on Tuesday after their worst start to a season for 28 years.
It was buried in the club's online library, but has since been removed from the website.
Welcome to United, Solskjaer!
After retiring, the Norwegian was appointed as United's reserve-team boss before joining Molde as manager in 2010.
United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said: "Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles".
"We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season", he added. He led Molde to a pair of top-flight titles over three seasons before taking over Premier League side Cardiff City in January 2014.
United sacked Jose Mourinho on Tuesday morning after a disastrous first half to the 2018/19 season with Sunday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool leaving the Red Devils sitting sixth in the table - 11 points off the top four and 19 behind the league leaders.

"In football you never know what can happen", Solskjaer told Molde's website.
Solskjaer had most recently been in charge of Molde in his native Norway, but their 2018 season has finished for winter.
'This is an opportunity I had to take.
'At the same time, I will follow closely what is happening here at home.
Solskjaer was a surprise choice to many, especially given how his last spell went in the Premier League with Cardiff, who suffered relegation out of the top-flight during his underwhelming eight-month spell in charge.
