@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.

In firefox-esr-bin 52.8.0-1 the playback support for some kinds of embedded audio and video is broken. Here are examples of affected websites:

A workaround which works for me is to downgrade ffmpeg to version 1:3.4.2-2.

As a consequence, the following two packages also have to be downgraded to the following versions: x264 2:152.20171224-1 libquicktime 1.2.4-17

Does anybody else experience this problem?

Everything ok! I'm glad you're supporting this package!

runaz commented on 2018-05-17 10:41

I'm sorry! The problem should be fixed now

Mhm something is going wrong:

Paket-Details: firefox-esr-bin 52.8.0-1 should'n it be Paket-Details: firefox-esr-bin 60.0.1-1

In case of confusion how the switch works, here is the PGKBUILD for Firefox ESR 52.8.0

@Marvix please use the flag FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER

command: export FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER=true

you can put it in your .bashrc file. This would build the 52.8.0 version of Firefox.

How can we update to stay at 52.8.0 ESR instead at 60 ESR?

What should we change in the PKGBUILD, what should we uncommend?

Thank you @runaz. Now I have to set it to ingore package list.

@runaz sha256sum has changed

Edit: sorry I got it, you are using the sha512 sum

runaz commented on 2018-05-12 09:07

@rotanid you can just do something like export FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER=true This would build version 52.8.0

jbehmel commented on 2018-05-12 08:53

Mhm, okay... maybe it would be an option to initiate packages like:

firefox-esr60-bin firefox-esr52-bin ...

I would like to switch to firefox-esr, but due to the major changes in >60 i'm waiting for not having the double work in implementing my profile.
