    Default No Firefox 60.6.3 ESR in Leap 15 update repository

    I am looking for the latest version of Mozilla Firefox ESR and found that http://download.opensuse.org/update/openSUSE-current/ only provides MozillaFirefox-60.6.2-lp150.3.48.1.x86_64.rpm but no package for Mozilla Firefox 60.6.3.

    There is a package MozillaFirefox-60.6.3-lp150.1.1.x86_64.rpm in http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/.

    When i try want to add that repository in yast i get an error that the file "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/repodata/b9eb2fdece883822504448522210294ef94db30e13d238141716878c180b1207-primary.xml.gz" cannot be downloaded and it is impossible to add that repository.

    Checking some of the mirrors given in "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_Leap_15.0/mozilla.repo.mirrorlist" shows that some of the mirros can provide that file others can't.

    Whatsoever basically my question is: Why is there no package for Mozilla Firefox 60.6.3 provided in http://download.opensuse.org/update/openSUSE-current/?

    Regards

    I should have checked https://status.opensuse.org/ first !

    I guess my problem is caused by the rsync service on rsync.opensuse.org beeing down for maintenance at the moment.

    Why should there be?

    The current version 60.6.2esr has the latest bug repair (about the switching off of add-ons).
    And this is Leap, a stable release that will NOT provide the newest, but stick to what it was teste and released with as far as possible (security and recommened patches only).

    Well, it depends on what one calls a "bug repair".

    I personally prefer a Firefox version that does not force me to enable Normandy in order to get back my add-ons.

    I only used YaST Online Update (you could use zypper patch when you prefer), to get that repair. Nothing unusual. No Normandy (whatever that may be apart from a French Département).

    I (and others) did so six days ago (post #26): https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...Plus-off/page3

    It allows Mozilla to conduct "Studies" ... (and, to the OP, no, I don't allow it either).

    See: https://mozilla.github.io/normandy/u...teraction.html

    You may want to have a look here https://github.com/mozilla/normandy and here https://github.com/ghacksuserjs to see why i don't want to use it.

    But as i already mentioned it is just my privat opinion: It makes no sense to me to use add-ons like "noscript" if i on the other hand i have to enable Mozilla to "spy on me".

    Just to make sure that not one of the other settings in my "user.js" is the culprit:

    Does your MozillaFirefox-60.6.2 keep your add-ons enabled when you set "app.normandy.enabled" to "false" and "app.normandy.api_url" to ""?

    As you may have understood: no, I do not use it. I just updated using YaST after the update was made available by the openSUSE devs. That Normandy was never subject in this thread until you introduced it.

    So did i (to tell the truth: i used zypper up not yast) and found that my add-ons were still disabled.

    Some analysis led me to the conclusion (which might be wrong), that disabling normandy causes FF 60.6.2esr to disable the add-ons. So i installed FF 60.6.3esr (from Mozilla) and found that it will enable my add-ons even if normandy is disabled.

    Sorry! It is my fault that i expressed myself not clear enough here (my English isn't that good).

    The point i want to make is:

    To me FF 60.6.2esr is not really a remedy for the certificate bug (because it forces you to enable Normandy what i consider to be a privacy leak). From my point of view only FF 60.6.3esr is a real remedy for the certificate bug and therefor FF 60.6.3esr should be provided via the Leap 15.0 update repository.

    However that is just my personal opinion.
