    You need to download Firefox from the Mozilla website. There is a tar.gz file. Download it, then run :
    # gunzip firefox - 1.0 - sparc- sun- solaris2.8.tar.gz
    # Tar xf firefox -1.0 -sparc - sun - solaris2.8.tar.gz
    firefox is in the same directory , u need all the patches for your operating system updated to make it work.

Firefox is a free Internet , free and open source developed and offered by the Mozilla Foundation. Strictly comply with web standards , modern , extremely friendly , innovative , secure and fast.
