wow...isn't your computer BOMBARDING you to update to fedora 9? that's one of the reasons why i stopped using fedora. well fedora uses yum for packages. just do:

yum update firefox
you also might want to just upgrade to fedora 9. it comes with a beta of ff3, but you can upgrade that using the same command.

Hope this helps!
