Mozilla Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release 60 is certified as a Windows-based client browser for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2. This includes 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Firefox Quantum.
What is Mozilla Firefox ESR?
Mozilla offers an Extended Support Release based on an official release of Firefox for organizations that are unable to mass-deploy new consumer-oriented versions of Firefox every six weeks. For more details about Firefox ESR, see the Mozilla ESR FAQ.
E-Business Suite certified with Firefox Extended Support Releases Only
New personal versions of Firefox on the Rapid Release channel are released roughly every six weeks. It is impractical for us to certify these new personal Rapid Release versions of Firefox with the Oracle E-Business Suite because a given Firefox release is generally obsolete by the time we complete the certification.
From Firefox 10 and onwards, Oracle E-Business Suite is certified only with selected Firefox Extended Support Release versions. Oracle has no current plans to certify new Firefox personal releases on the Rapid Release channel with the E-Business Suite.
Plug-in Support removed in Firefox ESR 60
Mozilla has removed plug-in support in Firefox ESR 60. This means Firefox ESR 60 cannot run Forms-based content in EBS using the Java plugin method.
If your Firefox ESR 60 end-users run Forms-based content in EBS, you must switch from the JRE plugin to Java Web Start.
EBS patching policy for Firefox compatibility issues
Mozilla stresses their goal of ensuring that Firefox personal versions will continue to offer the same level of application compatibility as Firefox Extended Support Releases.
Oracle E-Business Suite Development will issue new E-Business Suite patches or workarounds that can be reproduced with Firefox Extended Support Releases. If you report compatibility issues with Firefox personal releases that cannot be reproduced with Firefox Extended Support Releases, your options are:
EBS Compatibility with Firefox ESR security updates
Mozilla may release new updates to Firefox ESR versions to address high-risk/high-impact security issues. These updates are considered to be certified with the E-Business Suite on the day that they're released. You do not need to wait for a certification from Oracle before deploying these new Firefox ESR security updates.
