In CentOS 5.5, usually I use "Software Updater" in pull down menu to upgrade applications.

Applications > System Tools > Software Updater

But "Software Updater" can only upgrade to Firefox 3.6.13
How can I upgrade to latest version, which is 3.6.16?

download the RPM and install it would often be the quick and right answer.

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/3.6.16/

i.e. you can get the source and compile it your self or wait until the newer version is made available.

Official distro must test before shipping new releases so they are always a little late.

To use last releases you must download thesm from the provider, in this case firefox.
