@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.

Unfortunately I can't reproduce it on my machine. It is either a configuration problem of your system or a bug in Firefox. Either way you could try reporting it to Mozilla.

Hey, error was gone for some time... Now I'm recognizing it again. Should I report it to Mozilla?

Starting in safe mode is working fine and every command is right: for normal mode 'firefox-esr %u' and for safe mode 'firefox-esr -safe-mode %u'. The only thing is that the "application menu" in the Gnome Top Bar and the hover label in the list of the running applications says "Firefox ESR - SafeMode" even if it's normal mode...

I just tried starting Firefox in SafeMode and that worked for me. But I'm using Mate as window manager. Could you check what start command is used in your Gnome shell? Here it is 'firefox-esr -safe-mode %u'

Hey, I just noticed a strange behavior on Firefox. In my Gnome shell is written Firefox ESR - SafeMode and that, although Firefox is obviously not in SafeMode, since all Addons are enabled.

I just completely reinstalled Firefox and started it with a clean profile and observed the same behavior.

When I start Firefox in SafeMode, it actually starts in SafeMode.

Can any of you confirm this behavior?

The hash of firefox-52.9.0esr.tar.bz2 is fixed now. Thanks for the info

yeah, seems to me like x86-64 should be: b5d7da00766354e72f5a48f4f2143623428256d79d0b3e958ed6764b680afdf2b3188c61b09a02dd1537c8b8d3ddd1a1b828b1cc13a16df02a52538a42c62954

i686 seems to be correct.

The hash of firefox-52.9.0esr.tar.bz2 looks wrong to me. Does anyone else see the same?

@toniwiki i've tried various tweaks in about:config and installed ffmpeg-compact57 and now html5 with MSE & H.264 working

toniwiki commented on 2018-05-23 06:54

Same problem here with firefox-esr-bin 52.8.0-1.

According to, firefox has no H.264 and MSE & H.264 support. On pages with html5 <video> tag with type="video/mp4" firefox tells "Video format or MIME type is not supported".</video>

Any workaround to keep current ffmpeg version?
