Re: how to update my firefox in linux redhat el5

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 was first released on 2007-03-15, which makes it almost 4 years old.

The first thing to do is to see if that version of Linux meets system requirements for Firefox 3.5 /3.6.

The GTK package is usually too old on Linux distros that came with Firefox 1.5 and 2.0 versions, and need to be updated. It's usually easier to install a newer version of your Linux distro than it is to update "packages" ala carte.
