I managed to install Firefox 2.0 from an RPM site on the Internet which 
said it was for FC4, and it is working fine, so that ticket I filed can 
be ignored unless the CentOS 4.4 developers want to create an RPM 
specifically for CentOS 4.4. I don't think I broke anything as the only 
other package dependency that the installation needed is 'cairo' and I 
did not notice that in the default CentOS 4.4 repositories, but if I did 
it is on me and I will definitely not be bothering any of the CentOS 4.4 
people about it.

Thanks for your help !
