Happily, Mozilla still support ESR 52, so here is 52.8.

No new i686 builds will be hosted on my server.

@kachelaqa: I'll upload a rebuild for these, until you can make a symlink for changed sonames.

@Case_Of. I am a very grateful user of your firefox-esr-gtk2 and thunderbird-gtk2 binary packages, as my system is now too old to build them from source (overheating problems). The current packages depend on, and won't work with, so are in need of a re-build. Do you have any plans to do this? Sorry if I seem impatient, but not being able to upgrade libvpx is starting to cause me quite a few problems.

It is now fixed, sorry for the long wait and all inconviences caused by this.
My connections issues were longer than expected.

@bidulock: Hi, I'm having connection issues currently, I will be able to investigate on it next week.

Regarding gcc63: note that this package was merged into gcc6.

I have gcc (GCC) 7.1.1 20170630 installed.
Since gcc63 is needed to build firefox-esr-gtk2, I'm trying to install it, but the build fails:
