firefox fc10 on fc11

I've been having problems with firefox3.5 for the last month (it freezes my pc). The problem was fixed by removing firefox with yum and using the firefox3.0.11 tar.bz2 file from getfirefox.com

The problem I have now is that I don't have any plugins available to me since I didn't use yum to install firefox. I downloaded the fc10 rpm for firefox3.0.11 but get an error trying to install it in fc11.

Here's what I did:

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck firefox-3.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm

Loaded plugins: protectbase, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Local Package Process
Examining firefox-3.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm: firefox-3.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64
Marking firefox-3.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm to be installed

--> Finished Dependency Resolution

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Should I tell yum to ignore these errors?

rpm -ql --provides xulrunner |grep gecko
gecko-libs = 1.9.0.11


Looks like package xulrunner provides that. You can try downloading the F10 version of xulrunner and install it with firefox at the same time.

I got the same thing:

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck xulrunner-1.9.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm firefox-3.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm

Loaded plugins: protectbase, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Local Package Process
Examining xulrunner-1.9.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm: xulrunner-1.9.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems

Then I tried this:

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck xulrunner-1.9.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpmLoaded plugins: protectbase, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Local Package Process
Examining xulrunner-1.9.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm: xulrunner-1.9.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64
xulrunner-1.9.0.11-1.fc10.x86_64.rpm: does not update installed package.
Nothing to do

How do I make yum install 2 versions of xulrunner?

try
yum remove xulrunner
or
What I usually do is when I want to downgrade rpms I put them both into a directory say, Download,
su -
cd /home/myuser/Download
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage firefox* xulrunner*

if I use rpm to install these packages, is yum used at all?

No. The rpm command method does not require yum.

What I'm wondering is does yum keep a record of the xulrunner and firefox rpms that are being installed using rpm, so that these don't conflict with something yum would install possibly next week? If not, could my pc could get messed up during a future yum update?

The yum program uses the installed rpm database to do dependency resolution, and fetches whatever packages are needed. It will also know of any rpms that you have installed manually using the rpm command because that updates the rpm database also. If you do a yum update after "downgrading" packages it will try to update them to the new versions, unless you have excluded those packages in the yum configuration files or on the yum command line.

I cannot say what dependencies are on xulrunner besides firefox, but if you do a yum remove xulrunner then you will know, and you always can say "No" at the prompt to actually do the remove.
