You can download the Firefox 1.0.2 version from http://www.mozilla.org
which has a nice installer that you run from a console window if you can't find the rpm at any of the sites I have in my yum.conf
After you download the tar.gz Firefox package from here > http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/all.html
, run as root:
tar xvzf firefox-1.0.2.installer.tar.gz
then in the console, change to the directory it unpacked to by typing as root:
and then you run
Make sure you choose "custom install path" and make sure it goes to /usr/local/firefox
You can then after that make any launcher addition to the menu or taskbar or desktop and make the command
The icon is available in the /usr/local/firefox/icons
directory. Choose the one that's the largest (mozicon50.xpm).
