Seems to happen 100% of the time updating to or installing firefox.i686 0:11.0-1.fc18 on my machine, though it's likely an i686 specific issue given the error message.
Steps to Reproduce:
The problem seems to be solved in 11.0-2.fc18.
Maybe. The latest firefox update no longer triggers the problem, but that doesn't mean the yum issue is fixed. Yum didn't detect the issue while depsolving, so that skipbroken could skip the firefox update and update other stuff. The error message specifically requested a bug filed against yum rather than the package that triggered the problem.
Yeh, but as I've said in other reports of this bug ... this is really a specfile/rpmbuild problem as the version was broken.
