Updating firefox on fedora
Basically Firefox on Ubuntu provides 4 modes of update.
Daily Channels (nightly Builds), Firefox Beta, Firefox for future (named aurora), and then comes the stable you need to know is the basic terminal commnad to make everything simpler. Using this ppa will not only install the latest Firefox 10 nightly build, used to be called “minefield” – updated daily!

Is there an exclude command that can go with the 'yum update' to stop it updating firefox or the kernel but everything else can be done.
