Which version of RH do you have? Normally Firefox comes as part of the std install.

You can always find the latest version (hint: it isn't 3.5 any more) here:

How about # yum install firefox

May be you will then get 3.6.4 installed ?
If you have RH EL 5.
The free version of EL5 , Scientific Linux
installs 3.6.x.

Ubuntu doesn't allow to be logged in by root through GUI, though you can log in through terminal using sudo -s

The way I prefer doing this is
1. Remove current Firefox through Synaptic package manager.
2. Re-install the desired version manually, as shown in my blog.

But this is what I do,,you are free to prefer some other way.

Hi

I'm glad you solved your issues. As an aside; please read the forum rules. Avoid crossing threads with multiple unrelated issues. This thread went from Firefox installation on Red Hat, to downgrading Firefox on Ubuntu.

The idea is to make threads reusable to other users.
