[one-liner]: Howto Install Firefox 10.x on Fedora 14, CentOS 5.x & 6.x

Background

If you’re like me and still hanging back on Fedora 14, here’s a way to stay on the latest versions of Firefox without having to upgrade Fedora just yet.

Solution

Thanks to this post on the if-not-true-then-false blog (aka. if !1 0), it’s pretty easy to get firefox 10 working just fine on Fedora 14. Here are the steps I took to get it installed in ~2 minutes.

Personal thanks to the if-not-true-then-false.com blog as well as Remi Collet for maintaining the Les RPM de Remi YUM Repo and blog.
