Just an information for all who install new firefox versions (>5)
and use them for ILOM service processor web access. New firefoxes
will not display correctly the ILOM web iframes, and this problem
will not be fixed because it's Oracle's fault, but Oracle will not
update all products still in use. See


A possible workaround is to add the following lines to a newly
created file in your home directory named
.mozilla/firefox/*******.default/chrome/userContent.css :

/* workaround for ILOM problem */
@media print {
@namespace url(http:www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
#mainpage { visibility: visible !important; }

After firefox restart, ILOM pages should be displayed correctly.

This information should be placed somewhere in the OI troubleshooting
web pages tree.
