I don't know what update scanner is but currently the firefox-esr52 package is built without the firefox updater because there's no point in keeping it enabled as it's currently heavily out of date

There is a problem with firefox-esr52 (but not with the original firefox-52.9) and the addon "update scanner 3.3.2", if you want to use it: systemd-coredump[942]: Process 32470 (firefox) of user 1000 dumped core. Stack trace of thread 32470: #0 0x00007f17819d225f raise (libpthread.so.0) #1 0x00007f17784fe3ce n/a (libxul.so)

libxul.so from firefox-esr52 file size is 81567K and libxul.so from firefox-52.9: 65618K

@Muflone: Yes, it's unfortunate for me as well. A big security breach I can't do anything about.

Muflone commented on 2018-08-11 17:25

@Vrakfall that's true, unfortunately. Old firmwares for older servers

@Muflone: Thank you for maintaining this package. :) I sense a sysadmin who still has to deal with hold IPMI versions or something along those lines. :P

You're welcome @Muflone. Anyway, FF52 will be deprecated very soon by Mozilla, so maybe in the future it became complicated to patch with modern libraries... Will see. If I can help, write me an email.

Cheers

Thank you @figue, I really appreciate it

I'll update the package in the next hours to make it fully installable along with standard firefox

@Muflone all yours :)

@figue If you aren't interested in this package anymore please let me maintain it, I use it daily for my job

figue commented on 2018-08-05 20:29

@Muflone thanks for your comments. I'll check the installation asap...

Apart question: it has some sense now, but FF52 will be deprecated very soon, so my plan is to disown this package when it happens (I don't know if also request for delete). For tests with mainstream FF version, I use a binary package that is installed in /opt, it's enough for me in that way (only for tests at work, in home I have FF61).
