The Red Hat Network Notification Tool (KDE Applet) tells me

server is firefox-1.0.1-1.3.1.x86_64.rpm. Nevertheless, up2date doesn't
report the new version as available for installation.
Does anyone know why this is? Is the new firefox worth hand
Many people have suggested that the problem is with the mirror list that
I have in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources, and that the problem will go away
if only I wait a while or edit .../sources to have only one source for
updates. In fact:
(1) The problem has persisted for about 3 days, ever since 25-Feb.
(2) I don't have a mirror list; I use a single server. The key line
in .../sources is:
yum updates-released-fc3 http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/updates/3/x86_64
This is reflected by a message from up2date in one of its start screens,
yum channel fedora-core-3 from http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/3/x86_64/os
And, in fact, firefox-1.0.1-1.3.1.x86_64.rpm is present on this server.
(3) BTW: No-one has given an opinion about whether it's worth while to
update firefox by hand.
Thanks to all for your quick replies:
