with all due respect, why bother? just use the standard installer from firefox. just because there's no rpm for rhel5, doesn't mean you need to compile it yourself.

Nope, you should right click on the Applications item on your menu bar and select Edit menus. Then you can create an new Firefox item and specify the command to launch it; no need for the command line after that.
