Remove mozilla using the command:
rpm -e mozilla
wich will remove mozilla. You may have to remove morepackets along with the main packet mozilla.
To install your newly downlaoded XFree86 you do not have to remove your current version. The use of -U in the rpm command will do an upgrade.
rpm -Uvh <packet names>
