maybe the pkgbuild should be updated gst was replaced in favour of ffmpeg some versions ago https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/commit/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/firefox&id=508d2576cbd5699f8343e5e3540d540219992df6

Hi,
there is a new version of Firefox ESR. If you do not have the time to maintain this package I would continue to maintain it.

Firefox ESR 45 is still in the "Qualify" period, so I'd rather stick to 38 by default :

updated to 45.1.0. sorry for the delay, I'm moving to a new house and have been offline for a few days.

for anyone who wants to keep using 38.x, if you set environment variable $FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER this will build the older 38.x version. anyone have any objections to that system? or would you guys rather keep the older version by default and only build 45.x if some variable is set? other thoughts?

@barton, the firefox-esr package is for people who want to compile from source; this one downloads the binary from mozilla's servers for a package that builds more quickly.

38.x has been updated upstream [1].
@izilly For those seeking 45.x and beyond, there's firefox-esr [2] so please keep this at 38.X. Thank you.
