$ yum install firefox --enablerepo=updates-testing

I do not know the correct answer to this question, but I did find the following and a comparison/contrast:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/9/Schedule

http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox3/Schedule

This could also be related to KDE4, the only difference is that KDE is a much much bigger project.One can use another browser besides firefox, seamonkey, konqueror come into play.  Sure can use another DE, like xfce or gnome, but many KDE users also ask themselves why this?
