And the answer from the link is no, Fedora 14 doesn't have a packaged version 
of Firefox 7. You have to use the remi repo for that, which is a 3rd party 
repo. So if you have F14, there is no such thing as
"Fedora packaged Firefox 7".

But what I would like to know (and Rahul's link doesn't explain) is *why* F14 
doesn't have FF7? At this point F14 will be EOL'd soon, so it doesn't make 
sense to update FF now, but it did make sense several months ago. Why wasn't 
it done?

Best, :-)
