Firefox Update in FC4?

So I just installed FC4 and it is nice. I am only confused how I can update Firefox (1.0.4 - 1.0.5)?

Yum does not seem to have a package for the latest verion and I have no idea how to install this manually and if that will mess up anything with 1.0.4 since that was embedded in the system.

[root@localhost ~]# yum update firefox

Be patient. Updates usually take a few days to be tested and packged in rpm format. If you don't want to wait for official updates, you can create your own firefox rpms using the guide at fedoranews.
