Different suggestion - why don't you remove the swiftfox version, 
and install FF 2.0 from the Fedora development repo - you might 
gain the advantage of getting a version that a Fedora developer 
has worked on specifically for Fedora - I did just check, and 
it's there. I have not researched whether there are problems 
with it, but I can't recall any big discussions about if from 
the development list - but, I often can't find my memory ;-)
