Is it just me or firefox 3.1b2 for opensolaris was severely broken? open link in new tab didn't always work, the whole browser did close at random times without saving the session, seemed a regression to netscape 4.5 in the old legacy unix days to me :/
I hope this b3 fixed some (all?) of this, because all the other firefox versions that I've tried under solaris/opensolaris worked like a charm so I'm worried the quality could go worse over time :(

Hi Sickness, thank you for comment. Firefox 3.1 itself has not been released yet, it's till beta. So I understand it's still not stable. Also there are some dependencies of Solaris/OpenSolaris platform. If you're seeing unstable issues, please send your issues to opensolaris forum. Dev team is gathering feedbacks - http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=96323&tstart=0

I've just installed firefox 3.1b3 on opensolaris, and I noticed 2 things:
1) after bunzipping the package data stream, you don't have the 3 package files ready to install, you have to transform the stream to actual packages with this command:
pkgtrans firefox-3.1b3.en-US.opensolaris-i386-pkg ./ SUNWfirefox SUNWfirefox-devel SUNWfirefox-bookmark
2) firefox upon startup told me that the "Xesam" search extension was disabled because there was no compatible version of it for firefox 3.1b3
3) first test I've redone was to go on images.google.com search a random keyword, right click on an image, open in new tab: bingo! now it works! So I suppose this wasn't a firefox 3.1b2 problem, it was that damn Xesam search extension that I could not remove or uninstall, thank god it's now disabled >:P
