Firefox ESR 52.9.0 also 45.7.0 & 45.9.0 Debian Builds Subject description: Lighter Alternative to Official Mozilla Build?
Compiled by the Debian developers - i386 (32bit builds)
I gathered all the files into the one directory as per the usual arrangement.
This should run lighter than the official Mozilla builds from their website.
Should be OK for Wheezy, maybe some Slackos, Precise, (will need glibc 2.13 or later).
Firefox ESR 45.x Uses GTK2, does NOT need GTK3
No updater or crash reporter in 45.7.0
Unpack it into /usr/lib
Remove any old ones that are in there first.
Slackos should also have the numbered directory (symlink).
Puppies vary with regard to included Firefox, so you have to figure out any final tweaks like .desktop files, icons and symlinks in /usr/bin
Version 45.9.0 now added (last GTK2 ?). They have enabled crash reporter in this one.
However I may be uploading some repacks of Debian builds of more recent Firefox ESR which work with alsa and do NOT need pulseaudio. GTK3 is required though.
Firefox ESR 52.9.0 looking good in Wheezy and Stretch as I write this. _________________ Oscar in England
