Here is an update:

Tarball section
If you are upgrading from this tutorial, just delete your mozilla directory in /usr/local and follow Step 2 from RPM section

RPM section
If you are upgrading from RPM version do the following

Step 1.

login with your username, open a terminal and type:
su root
rpm -qa | grep mozilla
(this will list mozilla packages installed)

To remove the packages use this command:
rpm -e <package name>
NOTE: delete mozilla-browser package first

Step 2.

Now download the latest mozilla (comes with XFT support for AA fonts)


NSPR package:

Now install NSPR first, either double click on the package or from terminal:

rpm -ivh mozilla-nspr-1.3a-0_rh8_xft.i386.rpm

Now install the browser:

rpm -ivh mozilla-1.3a-0_rh8_xft.i386.rpm
or double click

Follow the same pattern to install other mozilla packages.
