Reading the version numbers mentioned in the original mail in
the thread, it would appear that the oldest firefox rpm mentioned
contains the newest Javascript (1.5) and newer versions contain
older Javascript (1.4).   Sounds like a downgrade to me rather
than an upgrade.

I just noticed that and thought I'd point it out in case others
saw it the other way around, which seems the case from other
comments in the thread...
