Thread: Firefox 57 Quantum missing...

    Unhappy Firefox 57 Quantum missing...

    Does somebody know why Firefox 57 is not present in http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/

    It is present in http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...p_42.3/x86_64/

    Leap 42.2 is still supported, right?

    According to the OBS page https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...lla/firefox57# firefox57 is currently "disabled" for Leap 42.2 and built only for 42.3 and Tumbleweed.
    According to this mailing list thread https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00201.html the maintainer possibly met with build errors (or thought that Mozilla ESR was the way to go for the few months remaining to 42.2?).
    Main: Leap 15 Gnome on i7 4720HQ + Geforce GTX960M
    Test: Leap 42.3 (& others) on Core2Duo + GM965

    If you want Firefox 57 in 42.2 just download the tar file from mozilla. You can extract it somewhere on your system (I use /usr/share), create a symlink to the executable in /usr/bin and it works fine.
    I assume you know that it drops all your extensions and not all are replaceable.

    Thanks, I'll do that. Regarding the extensions, I have only Adblockplus and Privacybadger installed. Both should work with FF 57.

    I installed FF 57 from firefox.com, works fine, including the extensions.
    The only thing I don't like is the filechooser dialog when saving files. I guess there's no way to change it to the native KDE dialog?
    It's not a showstopper, just annoying.

    Thanks again.

    KDE dialog is SUSE patch, not available in mozilla oficial builds.
