The latest version of Firefox & Thunderbird can be downloaded from the Remi repo.
Download and install the packages (Firefox or Thunderbird and Xulrunner) from their RHEL6 section.

Packages can be found here.
Download both packages for your system and install with "yum install *.rpm --nogpgcheck".

This way you have the latest software without having to enable the Remi repo.
You will have to check their site on a regular basis to see if there are newer versions wink.gif

Updating this topic seems needed.

Since Mozilla isn't really developing Thunderbird anymore, I suggest using the SL version.
It will save you the extra trouble and both versions are pretty in sync with each other.
So all you need to do to keep Firefox up-to-speed is download that package and the "xulrunner-last" package from Remi.

A bit of an older thread but...

If others are like me i grab the 32 bit and 64 bit Firefox ( two machines ) from the mozilla ftp site
As most of everyone here knows firefox 21 just came out
and for those that not found the solution to the plugins issue yet

The solution

in the move from 20.0.1 to 21 if you are using a plugin folder in your ff install there is a bit of a path change
--- for ff installed to /opt ----
/opt/firefox/plugins
is now
/opt/firefox/browser/plugins
