Firefox is part of the RHEL 6 repository, use yum to install it.

In regards to chrome; Have a look here Howto: Installing Google Chrome on RHEL 6

link below is for RHEL 5 but it should also work on RHEL 6.

Q: How do I install Firefox on my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 machine?
Answer
Firefox is installed by default with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. If you removed it or chose not to include it with a custom install, you can install it now as follows:

If you are not already using Red Hat Network to get operating system, security, and application updates for your Red Hat Enterprise Linux workstation, register now and follow the instructions provided. Red Hat Network service is free to MIT community members.
As root, enter the following command:
prompt> yum install firefox
Result: Firefox is installed or updated on your workstation as needed. If the most current version of Firefox is already installed, it will inform you that there is 'Nothing to do'.

i get this error when installing chrome

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

What does

Code:
locate libnss3.so libstdc++.so.6
output? I run Slackware, and have little knowledge of RHEL. But, when installing chrome on my machine, I had to use some ln -s commands to get everything to run smoothly. It looks like you need a 64 bit version of libnss3.so/libstdc++.so.6 and you don't have it.

Chrome is a no-go, RHEL is not supported and not compatible with their latest versions.

Make sure you have the 32-bit C libraries installed, since firefox is a 32-bit browser.

Code:
# yum install libstdc++.i686

Again, firefox is a 32-bit browser. Having the x86_64 versions of those libraries installed doesn't help, firefox needs the 32-bit version.

Code:
# yum install libXrender.i686
You can also use "yum provides" to find which packages provide your missing libraries:
Code:
# yum provides libXrender.so.1
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirrors.adams.net
 * epel: mirror.chpc.utah.edu
 * extras: centos-distro.cavecreek.net
 * rpmforge: mirror.webnx.com
 * updates: mirror.millry.co
223 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
libXrender-0.9.7-2.el6.i686 : X.Org X11 libXrender runtime library
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Other       : libXrender.so.1

well right here is ALL OF YOUR PROBLEM

RHEL is NOT free
you MUST buy the REQUIRED support contract!!!!!
the standard 1 year contract is $299 USD per year

to install the current firefox for rhel all you have to do is run this
Code:
su -
yum update
but without that REQUIRED support contract
you can not do that !!!

buy the required license !!!!
or
install the FREE reduild of RHEL 6.4
CentOS 6.4
