Install latest version of Firefox on CentOS
You can download yourself the tar.bz2 tarball for whatever Firefox version you need to your CentOS.
Here depending on your System (32-bit or 64-bit) you need to navigate the correct version of Firefox you need to install:
After downloading the new version of Firefox as tar.bz2 you need to extract it to a specific folder. The new Linux practice is to use the /opt folder for that. So in case of Firefox version 8 you can extract the tarball to the /opt/firefox8
After this step please create a symbolic link to your file /opt/firefox8/firefox:
ln -s /opt/firefox8/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
