    Default Firefox ESR

    Can I install Firefox ESR in Tumbleweed? It doesn't appear to be available with oneclick.

    opensuse does not package esr builds get a static build from mozilla
    https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/...-x86_64/en-US/
    unpack it somewhere in your home and run it, if you want a menu item edit ~/l.ocal/share/applications create a new desktop file that points to where you unpacked firefox

    Gnome 3 broke again, so I had to reinstall Leap, hoping against hope to upgrade to TW. I installed Firefox-Esr in Leap. Will this persist after the upgrade?
