Thank you for yor answers .
This is pretty easy. Download the firefox-*.tar.bz2 (what the version numbers happen to be) file and download to where ever you download files and cd into that directory. Then (need to be root to do this):
tar xvjf firefox-*.tar.bz2 -C /usr/lib64
This installs a "firefox" directory in lib64. The original firefox remains since it's named differently than just plain "firefox".
Next, cd into the /usr/bin directory, and blow away the "firefox" file (actually a sym-link) and create a new one:
ln -sv /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox firefox
This makes a new sym-link to the new firefox executable, with your menu's being none the wiser, so you can start the new version directly, just like you did the one that came with the distro.
