@@@@@UPDATE@@@@@: Flash Plugin 9/10/11.x 
... works now inside this gcc compiled Firefox!
That's a complete Novum. This took another tough week
of work night and day and night.
Nobody has ever achieved this before.

It was tested and is known to work with:
(instabilities and freezes related to videos that are in a too new format can always happen, but are not related to this port, while flash is closed src and I can only take their bins and make them work in FF as good as technically possible)

BTW: Tell me a good reason why I should upload the src ...
(6 still unpaid weeks hard fulltime work for about 100 EUR "donations" all together  .....)

If OI needs "src code developers, hey: OpenSXCE also needs them (beyond myself).
OpenSXCE is based on MartUX which was born in 2006, almost 2 years before Sun-Indiana.
Who and what is OI (other than a re-branded BeleniX)?????

Attention: On all newer Illumos based Distros _except_ OpenSXCE you probably need some loading order
nonsense to get the Flash-Plugin 11.x initializing itself rather than crashing.


$ cd ~/Downloads
$ wget http://opensxce.org/.FF/37/i386/SUNWfirefox37_supports_FlashPlugin__OpenSolaris_snv_130_i386.pkg.bz2
$ bunzip2 ./SUNWfirefox37_supports_FlashPlugin__OpenSolaris_snv_130_i386.pkg.bz2
$ su
# pkgrm SUNWfirefox37
# pkgadd -d ./SUNWfirefox37_supports_FlashPlugin__OpenSolaris_snv_130_i386.pkg

FF37 can be started in 3 different ways, either of the following ...

$ /usr/bin/firefox37

$ /usr/lib/firefox37/bin/firefox

or under JDS/Gnome from {Start}->{All Applications}->{Internet}->{Firefox 37 Beta}

# pkgrm SUNWfirefox37

p.s.   I posted this last update here only, because I promised the 3 persons who donated a bit last week, to get Flash working for them.
