We do not support Mozilla
###@###.### 2002-05-22

We need to build two version of OJI plugin due to SuSe8.1 release which ships the 3.2 compiled Mozilla.

###@###.### 2003-03-13

For Solaris Sparc, Java Plug-in is compiled with Forte compiler, not gcc. And we only support browser compiled with the same compiler which Sun Mozilla currently does.

We don't feel there is a need to support Mozilla browser compiled with different compiler.

That's the same lame argument used for the Linux java plugin until 
we then did a turnaround and started producing gcc 2.95/gcc 3.x plugin
versions. Whilst it is fine to expect internally that we compile Forte
only mozilla versions, we cannot expect the opensource community to do the
same most of whom only have gcc as a compiler since Forte costs $$$. 
Are we going to provide nightly Forte compiled builds on mozilla.org ?
Looks like we're willing to take mozilla and base our browser offering on
it but unwilling to give back.
