    Firefox 25.0 was installed in my Fedora 19 today Saturday 12-7-2013 with no problem at all. Works great and thank you very much. It was always like going to war just to upgrade Firefox and the next biggest step – will it work after the update, upgrade. Usually didn’t. Miracle when it did. This is the future answer on how to install the newest version of Firefox in Fedora 19.

    Sorry, but RPM Fusion doesn’t even ship Firefox. You can see that by using the “Browse available packages” section on the front page of http://rpmfusion.org/ And RPM Fusion’s build system has been broken since Sept 14th.
