The idea of downloading the source code, for me, and then trying to generate the appropriate build environment to work with creating a Custom Firefox## RPM wasn't quite feasible for me.

I did succeed in creating a Custom Firefox## (firefox52, for example) RPM, having it install into /opt/firefox52, and without too much issue.

With my environment, I didn't have the access that I required to obtain all of the appropriate tools. I also did not have the time required to learn it.

So, in the end, I downloaded already-compiled binaries of Firefox52, extracted them into my RPM build environment and built my own Custom FIrefox52 RPM after all.

I got the already-compiled binaries of Firefox from the following Url:- https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.6.0esr/ and then dove into the path= linux-x86_64/en-US/.

It worked for me anyway.
Thanks,
War
