I also don't use Evolution.  Firefox, however, has been a bit of a problem
with regard to the Java plugin.  My system is x86_64 and I don't want to use
openJDK because I develop too much software using Sun's Java.  The result
has been that I uninstalled the Firefox that came with the fedora 13 install
and installed the generic version from Mozilla remembering that the Java
plugin needs to come from a 32 bit version of Sun's Java.  This seems to
be fine.  So far that has been the only bump in the road.
