Hmmm, the only thing I can say for sure is: it works in F7. ;-)
I did not thing about it and just tried it. After I've patched the Firefox 
start script and let it point to /usr/lib/mozilla (not lib64) I simply 
did

aoss firefox

and it was good enough. I would investigate it deeper, but the problem is: 
I have no access to this machine any more. It was my friend's laptop.
