I believe Firefox should be pre-installed. But if it isn't, open a terminal and run sudo yum install firefox.

Java can on the latest stable version of Fedora, i.e. version 21, be installed through running sudo yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk. However, I guess 19 is still on Java 7, so the command is probably sudo yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk for you. If that doesn't work, execute yum search openjdk to get a list of potential packages, where you will be able to find the package name for "OpenJDK Runtime Environment".

in my opinion, if you did a new installation of Fedora, you should have used a more recent release of Fedora Linux, probably Fedora 21.

Fedora 19 is not maintained anymore thus will not receive any security updates. Check End-of-Life table for Fedora releases here.

Fedora 21 is shipped with Firefox pre-installed, as Fedora 19 was.

You can install Java as instructed by @matachi in his answer.
