Maybe I have a (dirty) solution in mind: you can grab the firefox i386 
RPM from a mirror, like 
and then yum localinstall /path/to/firefox-3.0.1-1.fc9.i386, it will 
try to resolve dependencies automatically.
I don't really know if it will work, but if you really, really want a 
32-bit firefox maybe you can try and pray $DEITY that it work :P
