I believe what a lot of x86_64 users end up doing is removing
the 64-bit firefox and installing the 32-bit version.

You have to manually create a repo file that points to i386
base and i386 update. You then run

yum remove firefox
yum install firefox.i386

or something like that - and it will pull in 32-bit firefox
with al the 32-bit dependencies.

What Michael describes is what I do.  A how-to is here:
