As a result Yum install firefox is not available on the menus as no Internet menu item is created. Firfox is only available in terminal.

Firefox is available on the DVD so no additional size would occur to DVD

Frankly speaking I wouldn't consider this a bug. I mean, it's desktop environment, not a spin. And the LXDE desktop environment does not come with a browser, just as it does not come with an e-mail client or whatever.

If they had all these application, I would be fine including them, but I don't think we should install stuff that is not part of LXDE as "Applications for the LXDE Desktop". And for firefox, there is no need to, it's available as an option of it's own.

Nevertheless I have added firefox to the F20 and F21 comps file in [master f5fbf9e]. Just for consistency, not because I am convinced. If somebody has a good reason, please speak up. ;-)
