Firefox support for Red Hat 8.0

Well, the system requirements page for Firefox claims to support my OS, but the 1.5 release crashes on startup just like the nightlies do. Quite unfortunate.

And before yet another wise-ass suggests that I should upgrade my OS, I must point out that I use this computer for actual work, which means that I can't just do OS upgrades willy-nilly, since they tend to make it unusable for a few weeks until I fix all the breakage from RedHat's update utility. That might be an option in summer 2006, but not till then.
