Firefox 2 Certified on Vista for Oracle E-Business Suite

Firefox 2 has been certified with the E-Business Suite for some time now on Windows XP.  For those of you planning your Microsoft Vista rollouts, you'll be pleased to hear that Firefox 2 is now certified as a client browser on Vista for the E-Business Suite.

Vista Requires the Native Sun Java Plug-In

Remember that all browsers certified with the E-Business Suite on Vista (both IE and Firefox) must run Forms-based content via the native Sun Java Runtime Engine (JRE) plug-in.  Oracle JInitiator is not certified for Windows Vista due to fundamental incompatibilities with Sun's underlying JDK 1.3 libraries on the Vista codeline. 

Firefox on Vista is certified as a desktop client for Oracle E-Business Suite with the following Sun Java plug-ins:
  • E-Business Suite Release 11i: 
    • JRE 1.5.0_12 and higher
    • JRE 1.6.0_03 and higher
  • E-Business Suite Release 12: 
    • JRE 1.5.0_12 and higher
    • JRE 1.6.0_03 and higher
Prerequisites

E-Business Suite Release 11i

  • Oracle Applications patch 10 (11.5.10) plus Maintenance Pack 11.5.10 CU2 or later 
    • Oracle Developer 6i patchset 18 (6.0.8.27.x) or later (Metalink Note 125767.1)
    • Oracle Applications Technology 11i.ATG_PF.H Rollup 4 (RUP 4) (patch 4676589) or later

Compatibility and Coexistence with Other Desktop Clients

A mix of the latest certified Windows and Mac OS X desktop combinations is supported.  The actual mix depends on the specific Applications release that you're running; check the Notes in the Reference section for your release.

For example, the currently supported desktops for Release 11i include:
  • Win2K / WinXP + IE6 / Firefox 2.x
  • WinXP + IE7 / Firefox 2.x
  • Mac OS X v10.3.9 + Safari 1.3 and higher
  • Mac OS X v10.4.7 + Safari 2.0 and higher
  • Vista desktop clients running the native JRE plug-in on IE 7
On the Horizon:  Firefox 3

Firefox 3 is just cresting the horizon now, with the Mozilla Foundation suggesting that Beta 5 will be the last one prior to Firefox 3's release this summer.  We've been working with Firefox 3 betas in our E-Business Suite certification labs for a while now. 

While I don't have any firm schedules for our Firefox 3 certification, you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.
