Yeah, I know that not everyone is having trouble with the CentOS 5.3
and Firefox 3.5 combination. That's why I'm guessing it's got
something to do with specific graphic drivers in Xorg. Both my brother
and I use the basic Intel graphics cards that came with our Optiplex
computers (he has a GX520, I've got a GX270).

And, I definitely didn't mean to criticize Michael Harris -- I was
very happy that he provided a Firefox 3.5 repository -- that's partly
why I started this thread, to make sure that everyone knew that it was
*not* a problem specifically tied to his package.
