It occurred to me to rpm -e firefox and rpm -e --nodeps xulrunner. After
yum install firefox xlrunner completed, I successfully brought up
firefox.
Don't know what the problem was, but I'm happy now. Moving .mozilla had
occurred to me if reinstalling both firefox and xlrunner didn't work.
This is something I don't really want to do as I don't know where
firefox keeps my login/passwords.

Thanks for your input.
