Next Firefox release

Postby msdobrescu » Thu Oct 12, 2017 18:18


As you probably already know, the next Firefox version, 57, will break the current plugins support.
What do you intend to do? Is there a plan to postpone the upgrade?
Is there possible to have some LTS for the current version, 56?

I have requested the ESR version to be added into Entropy:
It's supported till next summer.

My solution for now:
Code: Select all
# emerge -a1 =www-client/firefox-bin-52.4.1

A good number of plugins have already been changed so that they will work with the new FF plugin system. I don't think this is going to really be an issue for many users. Most users will just be happy because FF 57 is supposedly a lot faster.
