@tilt @all, you can now use "export FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER=true" on the command line to activate the switch for the Firefox-ESR v68.x update channel. Let me know if you experience any issues with this switch.

Did you try to compile with the patch I linked on March 26th?

10.0.3 does not compile... waiting for 10.0.4...
