Comment 1 Einav Cohen 2015-05-21 04:58:08 UTC
I assume that Firefox 38 (which is the current FF ESR) has been pushed to RHEL recently. 

AFAIK, some problems were encountered when testing the RHEV GUI on FF38, however they were all resolved and tests of the RHEV GUI on FF38 have passed successfully since then. 
@Pavel/Pavel - can you please confirm that?

re: the "Additional info" in Comment #0: I am not sure what the problem with IE11 is - it is supposed to be a supported browser (IE9 and above are supported for the web-admin), hence the message should not appear for it. If the message is indeed displayed for IE11, and assuming the IE browser is not configured to run in IE8 (or lower) compatibility mode [1], it is indeed a bug. 

[1] I actually think that we have a piece of code that forces IE11 to report itself as IE10 (so that we will be able to load the relevant GWT permutation in the IE browser) - see https://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/23367/. 
I am not sure if setting the compatibility mode manually within the browser settings overrides the effect of our piece of code or not.

not a 3.5.5 blocker - pushing to 3.5.6 for now.
