When opeing any office type document (open office for example) from a webpage/collab folder it always opens as read-only. Is there a setting or attribute to change the behavior to open it as read-write?

I have read-write privileges to the (tmp) directory/folder it saves it to.

I have a Solaris firefox issue where I am unable to launch firefox with ProfileManager option. I using 3.6.12 . I have tried to remove lock files and re-naming (.mozilla) without success.

Any pointers /suggestions on how to cleanup this offending install is appreciated.

  1. /usr/bin/firefox -ProfileManager (does not launch)
  1. echo $?

1

 But it is ok to simply using “/usr/bin/firefox” without option.


Do you know where to locate the error information?


After jsconsole opened, we can see this error message when execute “firefox -ProfileManager”:


Error: Warning: unrecognized command line flag -ProfileManager

I have been a Systems and Network Administrator and Engineer at Sun / Oracle for 25+ years now, continuously... And I am getting fairly sick of the problems with both Firefox AND Adobe Flash/Shockwave, for SEEMINGLY DROPPING SUPPORT as if Solaris [on SPARC or x86] doesn't even exist anymore??

This is BAD FORM.

Firefox widows update 3.6.8 showed size 11.0 MB from firefox auto update. I am on high speed internet connection and normally it took just seconds to update firefox but this time, it took 45 minutes to finish downloading. While it was downloading, I did my internet speed test. It was at 4MB/sec. I later check firefox website, the 3.6.8 file size should be 8 MB. I don't know if my firefox update download is legit. Although, after installation, the new version seem worked file. Any suggestions?

This happened

How do I stop Firefox4.0 from hanging on a Solaris 10 system?

I am trying to upgrade to Firefox 4.0 on a SunBlade 150 running Solaris 10 (sparc). Firefox 3.6.13 runs fine. But Firefox 4.0 (as well as beta versions 9, 10, and 11) hangs repeatedly. Sometimes it hangs the whole system; usually not. The ``Firefox hangs help page is not useful because Firefox 4.0 hangs in every circumstance listed there and every circumstance not listed there. It hangs when loading web pages (doesn't matter which) and when not loading web pages. It hangs with plugins enabled or disabled. Sometimes it yields ``illegal instruction or ``bad window parameter error messages, sometimes not. It will hang when loading any page requiring a password, or when loading a page not requiring a password, or if left alone for a few minutes. The only way to get it to exit gracefully is to quit immediately after starting it. Surely version 4.0 should perform better than this. What is missing, or what should be removed? Thank you for your assistance.

The word delimiters used to be inherited from my gnome desktop settings. Since upgrading to 3.5, that is not the case. As part of my job, I look up email and ip address and need to copy them from one place to another. I used to just double-click the ip address and it would hight light, then I could middle click to paste it. Now I have to carefully swipe over the whole IP address.

Downloaded Firefox 4.0.1 tarball for SPARC/Solaris from the contributed directory. It works fine by itself, but if I install the Flash plugin, it crashes within minutes. The same thing occurs with FF4.0 and with any version of Flash, including the current 10.3. OS: Solaris 10 update 9, patched as of May 27, 2011. Hardware: Ultra45 with dual video cards.

This has never been a problem with FF3.x.
