Also there's a package like mozilla-opensuse-branding.

And if you try to install vlc plugin (32bit) you will fail
miserably... it basically want to switch everything over to 32-bit.

Hi,

I got tired of the flash plugin problems with 64-bit firefox and
tried to install the 32-bit version instead..
.. by simply by choosing the "i586" version from the
yast package manager.

It does not work.. when trying to start firefox it says:

Could not find compatible GRE between version 1.9.0.1 and 1.9.0.1.

What is the correct way to install 32-bit firefox ?

It's supposed to work that way.
But there is a small bug(*) about automatic dependencies. Please make
sure that you have also installed
mozilla-xulrunner190-32bit
mozilla-xulrunner190-gnomevfs-32bit
mozilla-xulrunner190-translations-32bit

(*) It's known issue but it's not easy to solve. I haven't found a way
yet unfortunately.
