I was able to get Firefox 52 ESR to work on Solaris 10. The key is to change the user and group ownership. You will need the 'bunzip2' program preinstalled to unpack the file.

[root@System:/root/Download]# wget http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.0esr/contrib/solaris_tarball/firefox-52.0esr.en-US.solaris-10-fcs-i386.tar.bz2
[root@System:/root/Download]# bunzip2 < firefox-52.0esr.en-US.solaris-10-fcs-i386.tar.bz2
