Not really. Red Hat (CentOS's upstream) announced early on in the 5.x
series that they would move to firefox 3.0 when it was ready. The Red
Hat 5.2 beta had firefox-3.0 in it, and it had been discussed on this
list before.

Well, not so much surprised by the appearance as surprised by the decision to make a change that was likely to cause incompatibilities with software built against 1.5. I moved to EL versions to try to avoid such things...
