How do I install Firefox 4 on Fedora 14?


I downloaded Firefox 4 but I couldn't fine instructions how to
install it. I extract the files then double click on file Firefox to
run, the icon disappeared left a gray square in place, and now Firefox 4 is the one that loads when I click on that gray square. If I move the Firefox directory can't no longer find.
I would like to install permanently?.
To do so I was given this instruction to execute

su -c "yum --enablerepo=remi update firefox"
it give me, the fallowing result

[Vinny@Lab2 ~]$ su -c "yum --enablerepo=remi update firefox"
Password:
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Error getting repository data for remi, repository not found
[Vinny@Lab2 ~]$

Can any body help? I will appreciate and thank you.

Hi.
All FF4 and FF5 dependencies are available in the rpmfusion repo (needed to run remi's FireFox packages on Fedora 13 and 14.
You'll still need Remi's repo as well.
