Can't update Firefox ESR on Solaris 10

Được đăng

I am currently running an ancient Firefox 10.0.7 ESR on Solaris 10 Sparc. I downloaded the version 52.0 ESR tarball from ftp.mozilla.org. It extracted just fine but when I go into the newly created firefox directory and type "./firefox", it still opens the old 10.0.7. The old version lives in /usr/bin and comparing the two, the new version has a later date and a much larger file size, so I doubt it's the same program. I even tried this on a second machine with the same results.

I'm at a loss here. Anyone have an idea why the new version won't open? What am I doing wrong?

Is the old Firefox 10.0.7 version completely closed/exited before trying to start the firefox .sh for 52 ESR?

It is because you have 2 versions on there. Uninstall/delete all folders and instances of Mozilla Firefox from your system and possible the registry and then install the 52 version.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Pkshadow, the OP is using the Solaris 10 Sparc operating system as mentioned in post and by tags and is only using WinXP to post this thread. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_(operating_system)

If Solaris behaves much like Linux then you can have multiple Firefox versions just fine. You can multiple version of Firefox on Windows even.

DOH! No indeed, I had the old Firefox open on both Sparc machines while trying to run the new one. That was exactly it! Closed the old one first, then ran ./firefox in the new 52 directory and hey presto, we have liftoff!

Thanks *SO MUCH*! You wouldn't believe the amount of hair-pulling and teeth-gnashing I went through over this :-) James, you are now officially my Solaris Hero of the Year.
