Fedora 7, with all updates. 

How reproducible:
Terminal: F1

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to get help; eg. F1 
Actual results:

Expected results:
Help text

Additional info: yum install yelp

This is not a bug -- firefox serves two purposes in Fedora, it works as a
browser, and then it provides a lot of functionality to other programs (i.e., it
functions as a library of a kind). Yum then just does the right thing by
removing all packages which require firefox.

Other issue is that all Gnome using help should depend on yelp -- unfortunately
that mean, that I will have to file a hundred or so bugs against each package
which should depend on yelp, but it doesn't. Oh well. (and yes, the side issue
will be that when you remove firefox whole Gnome will go ;-)).

However, concerning this bug for firefox, it is NOTABUG.

Also worth noting that firefox-32 requires both firefox.x86-64 and firefox.i386
installed.  It is only a wrapper script to enable you to launch the 32bit
version of firefox rather than the 64bit.  It is not meant to replace the 64bit

(In other words, firefox-32 has nothing to do with the source of this problem.)
