How to upgrade/install firefox for Solaris 10 on Sparc 64?
I just installed Solaris 10 on a SunBlade 100, as soon as I completed the install and I opened Firefox. The system asked me to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox, I downloaded the file to the Desktop, then expanded the file into "/usr/lib/firefox/" overriding the older firefox that was there. Then I created a symbolic link to "/usr/bin/". Now, Firefox doesn't work at all, no matter what I do, if I click the icon on the Desktop, or click the Firefox icon on the Launch menu, or if I issue commands from the terminal like "./firefox" nothing works.
Any ideas? Any and all help will be really appreciated.

I cannot even start Firefox now, I am posting this question from a Windows computer.
Hi guys, I also had this situation and since I was not able to convert the package to a datastream, I downloaded it from http: //www. sunfreeware. com/mozilla .html
They also provide some readme files that can be of help.
Once you have the datastream package you can install using pkgadd utility.
