@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.

Firefox ESR 45 is still in the "Qualify" period, so I'd rather stick to 38 by default :

updated to 45.1.0. sorry for the delay, I'm moving to a new house and have been offline for a few days.

for anyone who wants to keep using 38.x, if you set environment variable $FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER this will build the older 38.x version. anyone have any objections to that system? or would you guys rather keep the older version by default and only build 45.x if some variable is set? other thoughts?

@barton, the firefox-esr package is for people who want to compile from source; this one downloads the binary from mozilla's servers for a package that builds more quickly.

38.x has been updated upstream [1].
@izilly For those seeking 45.x and beyond, there's firefox-esr [2] so please keep this at 38.X. Thank you.

firefox-esr 45.0 is out now as well (there is a 2 release overlap when a new major version is released).

I'll keep this package on 38.x for now to give people time to get ready for 45.x, but if you want to go ahead and start using/testing 45.0, you can use this PKGBUILD:
