Red Hat 9 is very old and completely unsupported... You can get the current version (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6) from http://redhat.com

You really aren't going to be able to install such a new version of Firefox on such an old version of Linux, at least not without major headaches (if it's even possible). Why on Earth are you using Red Hat 9 in the first place? It's out of date and unsupported, so you'd do yourself a favour by installing a newer distribution.

you might be able to install firefox 2 ( if you can find it) on RH9

but DO NOT use such a old and unsupported OS
RH9 is supposed to be "6 ft under"

Yes. Install the latest version of Fedora, and it'll work just fine.

RH9 is ancient, as others have said. Load an up-to-date OS, and the up-to-date software will work.

If you don't want to spend money, Centos is a free RHEL's clone:
