missing dependencies for firefox


I'm trying to install firefox on my pc with fedora core 5 but if I type "yum update firefox" it then starts downloading some stuff and at the end gives me
Error: Missing Dependency: mozilla = 37:1.7.12-5 is needed by package mozilla-devel
Error: Missing Dependency: mozilla = 37:1.7.12 is needed by package devhelp
Error: Missing Dependency: nss = 3.11-4 is needed by package nss-devel
but the strange part is if I type "yum list installed | grep mozilla" it gives
mozilla.i386   37:1.7.12-5  installed
and "yum list installed | grep nss" gives
nss  3.11-4   installed
if i'm not mistaken this means that the required dependencies are already installed. what am i doing wrong?

Hi and welcome to LQ.

What happens when you do
#yum upgrade firefox

After doing some more research I installed seamonkey and updated nss using yum and I can now update firefox

Weird though because I did the exact same steps as I did before on my laptop which also has fc5 and it worked flawlessly, go figure
