This is the approach that I use:

Just watch and when an update comes out run something like:
yum --enablerepo=updates-released-i386 update firefox

Since FC4 just came out, you will have to add the base repo as well in
the above manner to first install firefox.i386.  You can add other
mirrors by listing the urls under the baseurl= line.  Note that you
cannot use the mirrorlist= option and it should be disabled by
default.  It's probably best/easiest to copy the current .repo files
and make the necessary changes.
