Hi from your terminal output, it seems that you have attempt to add Redhat DVD as Repository before by creating or updating a config file in /etc/yum.repos.d
I think there is no relevant file for you problem in your dvd repository.

I will suggest using these steps to quickly solve your problem. The only thing is everytime i need to start firefox, i need to use the terminal to start it up:

1: Go to firefox, http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html and download the firefox-xxx.tar.bz2 directory into your local machine.
2:Extract the content using this command tar -xfv firefox-xxx.tar.bz2
3: I extract into my home directory and i go into the firefox directory: cd /home/vitalstrike/firefox
4: In the extracted firefox directory, type ./firefox & to start the browser.
