Interesting - I have this after the upgrade:

firefox.i386                               3.0.14-1.el5.centos         installed
firefox.x86_64                             3.0.14-1.el5.centos         installed

But I also am now seeing a problem that was not showing up before,
similar to one I've had with SeaMonkey for a long time.  After some
period of time, all of my Firefox windows stop showing flash videos
properly and I get long periods of silence interpsersed with bursts of
high-speed sound (noise, actually), or the video just stops a few
seconds in.  I don't think this is a CentOS problem per se, and I have
posted about it here before, just usually in reference to SM, not FF.

Of course, now that I'm using FF more for flash (because it works
better than SM for that and I rarely keep FF windows open long enough
to see this), it happens more frequently.
