I don't get it.  Firefox is included in fedora.  How can you
have any trouble at all installing it?  If you didn't say
you wanted it in the initial install, it should take no more
than 'yum install firefox' at any later time.  Likewise for
evolution and kmail if you need something usable while you
are working to install thunderbird - which is actually just
as easy if you point yum at a repository that has it.
