Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum downgrade firefox
erase firefox.x86_64 0:15.0-1.fc17
install firefox.x86_64 0:12.0-1.fc17
install firefox.x86_64 0:14.0.1-1.fc17
firefox.x86_64 0:12.0-1.fc17 won't launch (but it doesn't really matter).
Fedora don't keep multiple updates in their repos. so the only version available to downgrade to tends to be the GA version. There are some workarounds, like the "local" plugin.
