Update firefox from rawhide. That will sort out the files/dependencies.
Or just uninstall firefox and install java-1.7.0-icedtea from rawhide.
You are going to find this problem with a lot of packages in rawhide;
they used to require firefox, but now they require xulrunner instead.
That should fix it.
