Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 8/07 U4 to 10 10/09 U8 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On Solaris 10 update 8 or earlier Solaris 10 updates, Firefox 2.x and Thunderbird 2.x are bundled.
On the other hand, Solaris 10 update 9 and later, Firefox 3.x and Thunderbird 3.x are bundled.

Currently Firefox/Thunderbird 2.x have been EOL'ed and the bug fixes are only resolved on
Firefox/Thunderbird 3.x.

Although we recommend to upgrade to the latest Solaris release, this document explains
how to update Firefox/Thunderbird 2.x to 3.x for the user who can't upgrade the system to the latest
Solaris.
