Art of BI: EPM 11.1.2 and Latest FireFox Browser (3.6.10) – Not so much!

By | In Art of BI, Big Data, Business Intelligence | October 20th, 2010

After some recent testing with OBI 11g and EPM 11.1.2 and utilizing several browsers I found that the both the EPM and OBI 11g front ends are a bit clugey when viewing the GUI from the latest FireFox browser version release. I am not 100% if this is an issue with the ADF engine incompatibility or just a change in the latest release of FF. Either way, if you are using FF for the EPM 11.1.2 GUI I wouldn’t upgrade to the latest version of FF which as of today 2010/10/19 is 3.6.10. The previous version still works properly with EPM 11.1.2. I didn’t put any video together on this one but the screenshot below just highlight the versions.

In order to prevent automatic upgrades you can access the tab in the File > Preferences location from the file menu of your FF application.
