The intent is to track dependencies and patches required to build Firefox on OpenIndiana.
Mozilla Firefox is a free, open-source and cross-platform web browser
for Windows, Linux, MacOS X and many other operating systems.
It is fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web
browsers, such as tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up
Firefox also offers excellent bookmark and history management, and it
can be extended by developers using industry standards such as XML,
See notes about Flash 10.2/10.3/11.2 plugins with newer Firefox builds.
Firefox and Thunderbird may show high CPU load and become sluggish.
This is related to frequent calls to pollsys, one workaround is to set the property
layout.frame_rate to a lower value than the default 60 (-1).
A value of
24 seems to provided a decent balance.

For oi-hipster Firefox 43.x and higher, test your plugins in:
Use 'about:config' and 'about:plugins' and 'about:addons' to review status and resolve config issues.
For Flash :
libflashplayer.so - 188.8.131.52 (32-bit)
I removed $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/ecr2gste/pluginreg.dat then I created the directory plugins and copied libflashplayer.so into plugins.
I also changed the permissions on the plugin (0555).
