Error description

  • Background of request:
    Firefox 3.5.x will be end of life in August 2010 (see
    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html).
    Firefox 3.0.x has already reached end-of-life in March 2010.
    Firefox 2.x read its end-of-life in 2008.
    These are all firefox versions that are supported by Lotus
    iNotes 8.5.1.
    
    Customer is running Lotus iNotes 8.5.1FP2.
    
    The estimated release date of 8.5.2 (which is the first version
    to support
    Firefox 3.6.x as it seems) is Q3 2010.
    So, it seems there is a chance that we will have a gap where no
    firefox release
    is still supported by mozilla itself and Lotus iNotes
    simultaneously.
    If he is(all customers are) forced to use 3.5 to stay supported
    by Lotus iNotes
    there won't be any security and stability updates for version
    3.5 of firefox
    anymore.
    
    Therefore this SPR is to request Firefox 3.6 support with
    8.5.1fp4. As the ETA
    of FP4 seems to be in july, its near enough to bridge the gap of
    the missing
    firefox 3.5 support from mozilla.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • This APAR is associated with SPR# SDOY869BQ6.
    
    Deferred for 851 FP4. Accepting for 851 FP5 and 852
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • It was not possible to contain the development and testing
    requirements of delivering Firefox 3.6 support within the 8.5.1
    FP4 schedule. Firefox 3.6 will be supported in both 8.5.2. and
    in 8.5.1 FP5
