How to upgrade to a recent FireFox on CentOS 4.x

I like CentOS more and more. Yesterday, I actually set it up as a workstation on a PC instead of a server. In doing so, I discovered that the FireFox that ships with CentOS is really old, like 1.0.7.

To upgrade to the latest thing, you need to enable the "centosplus" repository. Like this:

         yum --enablerepo=centosplus upgrade firefox
