Mozilla Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release (ESR) 68 is now certified as a Windows-based client browser for Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.2 and 12.1
Firefox ESR 68 is certified for both Oracle E-Business Suite web-based (OA Framework/HTML) and Oracle Forms/Java-based interfaces provided the minimum requirements for deployment are met. For additional information refer to the following:
Windows Desktop Operating System
Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE)
Mozilla removed plug-in support starting with Firefox ESR 60. This means Firefox ESR 60 and higher cannot run Forms-based content in EBS using the Java plug-in method.
If your Firefox ESR 60 and higher end-users run Forms-based content in EBS, you must switch from the JRE plug-in to Java Web Start.
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.
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.
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:
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.
