I was able to update early this afternoon.  In the process, the new 
nspluginwrapper.i386 seems to have 4 new .i386 dependencies:  libcurl, 
libidn, nss, and sqlite.  Other than that, I was able to update to the 
new firefox 3.0.1.

Then again, I waited until they fixed things before updating:  firefox, 
epiphany, xulrunner, and yelp.  With the working update came updates for 
cpio, system-config-language, and totem.
