      I followed your step given above but I failed to update firefox in my CentOS 6.3 64bit, with the error result when trying ‘yum –enablerepo=remi list firefox’:

      Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: remi

      is there anything i can do to fix? please help.

      • Hi Daniel,

        You could try again if it was temporary down, because it returned 404.

        If you still have same problem then you can try following:

        
        yum clean all
        
        yum --enablerepo=remi list firefox
        

        If still no luck, then check, could you access following access directly:
        http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/6/remi/mirror

        I assume that you are using RHEL 6, but do you have working RHN subscription?

        I’m not sure, but I guess that it’s coming soon.

    13. Not so soon, because this version is released on 4-feb-2014 now is 11-mar-2014. After week or two they will release firefox 28.

      • Hi again George,

        Just checked Remi’s forum and I found that the reason is the lack of time. So maybe next build is Firefox 28 then.
