Firefox 8 and Thunderbird 8 on CentOS 6 / EPEL 6 / Scientific Linux 6

If there is one thing I do not like about CentOS 6, it is the lack of up to date versions of Firefox and Thunderbird. Well not anymore, thanks to this person you can now easily update Firefox and Thunderbird using YUM to version 8.
