I haven't gotten around to switching to firefox yet on Irix.

I don't think it is obvious.  The best place I know of to get it may be
the nekoware archives from nekochan.net (beware scantily clad anime
females).  But, that is going to have a lot of dependencies (which is
why I haven't gotten around to it).  I don't know of any recent SGI
Freeware builds, though there may be something on their beta site (and I
don't know where that is). 

You aren't the only one.
