Building Firefox on Solaris 10 Sparc

Once upon a time, a kind soul from Sun was providing Firefox builds for Solaris 10 Sparc but he seems to have given up after release 52 so I'd like to give it a shot.

First question: Does anyone already have a recent Firefox package for Solaris 10 Sparc?

Second question: Is it even going to be possible to do this? Ie. is there anything that would be a show stopper here? I've already downloaded the source for Release 66.0. Running ./configure got as far as it complaining that it needed Rust.

At this point I just thought I'd ask before getting in too deep. Thanks.

Unfortunately his is a End user help forum only. What your trying to do would go beyond what this help forum does for browser help. For O/S not supported by your system you will have to do some homework and since firefox is a free for public you can use the source code and build a version match to Solaris. That is how I see it here others may differ.

I see. Thanks for the reply. Meanwhile it appears the Rust issue was previously discussed extensively two years ago here: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1284816.

Apparently, the reason Solaris Firefox stopped at 52 is that that's when Rust appeared. You could configure with --disable-rust until 54 but then that was it. That option no longer seems to be in configure.

So absent any way to get Rust for Solaris Sparc, I guess I'm dead in the water.

Pity. I really liked using Firefox.
