Well, I was able to download the latest build installer and did it that
way, installing into /usr/lib/mozilla-1.x dir and it runs, but I don't
get the fonts that Red Hat's version uses and couple other things.
Going to try the way you did it (have done another rpm that way before
as well) and see what happens.

Mozilla-1.8 I believe is current build.
