Firefox 10 and OBIEE 126.96.36.199.0
By Torben Hein -Oracle on Feb 07, 2012
We just got note from Development that OBIEE 188.8.131.52.0 is currently not certified (compatible with) FireFox 10.
There are a few ways to deal with this:
- Avoid the FireFox 10 upgrade
- Wait for the backport Patch Set Bundle for OBIEE 184.108.40.206.0
- Wait for the OBIEE 220.127.116.11.0 version that includes certification for Firefox 6+ (including 10)
Once we have news on the subject or confirmed releases of the above patch sets, we will post this information here
read more about this in Doc ID 1407163.1
Patch 12877995 has been released (for Linux) and can be found via My Oracle Support
Googling for "Firefox 10 and OBIEE 18.104.22.168.0" brings up quite a range of results for this term.
One of the results even has a potential workaround.
It simply convinces Firefox to report an incorrect version number ( see here )
(something similar can be achieved using the "User Agent switcher" Firefox Add on - see: http://chrispederick.com/work/user-agent-switcher/ )
Currently this has not been confirmed by Development.
It has not been tested by Oracle, and
it is not anything Oracle can officially support.
Development has been informed of the workaround and we are expecting them to give us a statement about this soon, so stand by and check back here for more information later.
