As of beta 2 the answer seems to be "no":
[dave at fold ~]# rpm -q firefox
[dave at fold ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 4.92 (Beta)
This was discussed extensively on the fedora list. Red Hat will
continue to provide updates to Firefox 1.5 as per their support
agreement for RHEL. RH *may* choose to upgrade RHEL 5 to Firefox 2.0
but whatever version is the official version will be supported as long
as the RHEL release is supported.
