^Yes, to enable them you have to set them to 1. Try after setting them to 1.

With the release of Fedora 11 now past us, it's come time to remind
folks that per the release policy, maintenance for the N-2 Fedora
release ends one month after the Fedora N comes out.

In this case, since Fedora 11 just came out, that means that the end
of life for Fedora 9 will be 2009-07-10. After this point, no new
updates, including security updates, will be available for Fedora 9.
We strongly urge folks to upgrade to Fedora 11 in order to experience
the best and latest that Fedora has to offer.
So, even if you are able to get the repos working, you won't be able to get latest version of firefox from fedora repos. So better option will be to upgrade your installation.
What's Presto here?

I just upgraded to 10 today! And it's always a process fraught with difficulties.
Presto is some kind of enhancement to yum that speeds up the update/download process as per:

Problem solved or not?
I have heard about Delta, but didn't know that fedora has named it Presto.

No, not solved. I guess it has to be some kind of non-yum upgrade (or fresh install)to firefox, with subsequent manual cleanup of the old version.....I'm surprised this is not more seamless.....and everybody seems to have a different way to do it!

----------------------------
Before I installed Fedora 10, I downloaded Firefox 3.5.1 rpm, Openoffice 3.1 rpm, and java 1.6-15 rpm and burned them to a CD. Then during the install process, I chose "customize now" and specifically deselected the versions of OpenOffice (3.0) and Firefox (3.0.4) that came with Fedora Core 10, installing the rpms into /opt (openoffice) and /usr (java and firefox) when the initial install was complete.

Simple, fast, and no conflicts. Selecting packages during the Core 10 install was a bit tedious, but I saved a lot of space deselecting a lot of fonts and stuff I will never need, too.
