3 days ago an update to Firefox 3.0.7 on CentOS was announced...

That version is showing up on the mirrors...

Available Packages
firefox.i386        3.0.5-1.el5.centos         base
firefox.i386        3.0.6-1.el5.centos         updates
firefox.i386        3.0.7-1.el5.centos         updates

While Firefox 3.0.8 was released on 27th March, the upstream provider didn't
include it in it's updated firefox package when it was released on 28th
March, however, the two security issues that were the reason for the release
of Firefox 3.0.8 were patched in the version of 3.0.7 shipped making it
effectively the same as the Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8 release...
