I think it is in (/ going to be in) RAWHIDE (or FC development ...
whichever term you prefer).

I think the issue is that much of the current FC is being built against
FireFox-1.5 so they are not going to change it in a released product.
It should be in their next FC though. (This is just my opinion and
conjecture ... not to be confused with an official Fedora policy :P)

However, we don't have that issue in CentOS-4 ... as we build against
SeaMonkey (mozilla) and not Firefox directly.

I am using firefox-2 on C4 with zero issues (that I can ascertain at
this point anyway :P)
