I thought that Windows 7 is officially dead (while CentOS 6 is not).

Some functions of Teams "work" on version of Firefox that is in CentOS 7 and 8.
The separate client, ... at least it is a RPM package.

I have found this topic searching for the answer to a very strange question:
How is it possible that I have:
firefox-78.3.0-1.el6.centos.x86_64.rpm on a CentOS 6.10 machine,
while *only*
firefox-68.12.0-1.el7.centos.x86_64 on a CentOS 7.8 machine, both freshly updated.
Does not make much sense to me.
regards, Michal

CentOS 7.9 is pending release (being built). All updates to 7.8 are paused until the rebuild is complete. The newer firefox is part of RHEL 7.9 and will be part of CentOS 7.9 when it is released.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
