[oneiros at sincity ~]$ yum list | grep i386
OpenEXR-libs.i386                        1.6.1-3.fc9            
adobe-release-i386.noarch                1.0-1

There are plenty of i386 packages in the Fedora repos, but firefox isn't 
there, or at least I didn't find it (I use Konqueror anyway :P).
If you're searching 32-bit Firefox for the plugins (i.e. the Flash 
plugin) you can always use one of the free plugins avilable (Gnash or 
swfdec) or the proprietary plugin via nspluginwrapper (you can follow 
the guide here: ).
If you have other uses for 32-bit Firefox, well, then I don know :P
