This makes me wonder: Shouldn't those problems also happen with Firefox
on Solaris/SPARC? At least

does not show a lot of patches for the Blastwave version of Firefox.
In fact they patch only and provide their own .mozconfig.

If I understood correctly, Solaris will switch from Mozilla to Firefox as
the web browser in their base system in the near future, so I would
expect SUN to make sure Firefox to be sparc64 compatible.
