Hello,

I see from here that the Remi repository no longer provides the latest non-ESR Firefox and Thunderbird. Is there another repository from which I can get them? Or do I have to download the tar.bz2 from Mozilla and try to manually install them? Thanks!

I am unaware of any repository that provides the latest upstream versions of Firefox & Thunderbird, built as RPM packages, and suitable for Scientific Linux (or RHEL or CentOS).

OK, so I'll have to try manually installing from the tar.bz2 file, then?

Yes, that will be the only way if you must use the latest upstream versions.
