I have it running under FC5 just fine. I just unarchived it and put
into my own personal bin (/home/whatever/bin/firefox) and pointed the
link that I had on the panel to point to that version instead. As I am
the only one using the machine this works fine for me. I backed up the
.mozilla directory prior to doing this so that I could restore things to
where they were in case of any problems. Haven't seen any yet...
I'll probably do the same on my FC6 box later today.
