iNotes 8.5 und Firefox 4

by Thomas,
assono GmbH, Standort Kiel,

Anyone, who tried to use iNotes with the brand new [1] Firefox 4 browser, got into some trouble these days, iNotes uses XUL based design elements which are no longer supported (due to many security problems in the past, remote XUL [2] was removed in Firefox 4).

IBM plans to release a fix in the next fix pack [3] and there is only an unsupported work-around available (installing the Remote XUL Managers[4] Plugin). However, it is to be determined, if using a third party browser plug-in to evade browser security is the right solution.

Before installing Firefox 4, it should be considered to keep Firefox 3.6 until IBM releases an official fix for this issue, it may become a hassle to roll out Firefox 4 and afterwards the plug-in, just to remove it later on, because it is no longer needed.
