Hello,

there's a new package in rawhide, xulrunner
(xulrunner-1.9-0.alpha9.3.fc9). This package is supposed to provide
gecko-libs instead of Firefox and the plan is to ship Firefox as a pure
XUL application and run in by xulrunner.

Is this really going to work? The Mozilla guys made it clear that they don't want to make Firefox depend on xulrunner as that would limit their ability to push the envelope with firefox. If Fedora wants to make that move wouldn't that eventually require a fork?

Um, did you read the article? Specifically the "What are we doing?" opening text and the third bullet point underneath it?
