That firefox-esr52 would not fall on the pages with the error:

[Parent 3487] WARNING: pipe error (42): The connection was broken by the other side: file /builds-pkg/firefox-esr52/src/firefox-52.9.0esr/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 322

to file:

~ / .mozilla / firefox / *. default / prefs.js

add line:

user_pref ("privacy.trackingprotection.enabled", true);

For some sites, the problem still remains, for example:

https://comments.ua/politics/624633-privatbank-izmenil-nazvanie.html

Does not help:

browser.tabs.remote.autostart = false
browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 = false

Who knows the solution to the problem?

@ddifof: You actually have to rebuild packages that depend on icu every time its soname links get changed. This is true for all the soname links, afaik. Some maintainers update the pkgrel variable so AUR helpers actually notice the package should be rebuilt, some others don't or simply don't notice the update (You know, being in IT makes you being busy all the time :P).

With the defaults compilation options, I didn't succeed to connect to my work using jre (the firefox tab crashes before launching the jar). I tried to compile using the same options as Debian's, because I know the connection works with Debian package (firefox-esr 52.9), and now it works !

CFLAGS+='-fno-schedule-insns2 -fno-lifetime-dse -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -fno-schedule-insns'

Latest icu package updates broke library dependencies, I simply recompiled the package and all is good.

local/icu 63.1-2

local/lib32-icu 63.1-2

I don't know what update scanner is but currently the firefox-esr52 package is built without the firefox updater because there's no point in keeping it enabled as it's currently heavily out of date

There is a problem with firefox-esr52 (but not with the original firefox-52.9) and the addon "update scanner 3.3.2", if you want to use it: systemd-coredump[942]: Process 32470 (firefox) of user 1000 dumped core. Stack trace of thread 32470: #0 0x00007f17819d225f raise (libpthread.so.0) #1 0x00007f17784fe3ce n/a (libxul.so)

libxul.so from firefox-esr52 file size is 81567K and libxul.so from firefox-52.9: 65618K

@Muflone: Yes, it's unfortunate for me as well. A big security breach I can't do anything about.

Muflone commented on 2018-08-11 17:25

@Vrakfall that's true, unfortunately. Old firmwares for older servers

Vrakfall commented on 2018-08-11 15:08

@Muflone: Thank you for maintaining this package. :) I sense a sysadmin who still has to deal with hold IPMI versions or something along those lines. :P

You're welcome @Muflone. Anyway, FF52 will be deprecated very soon by Mozilla, so maybe in the future it became complicated to patch with modern libraries... Will see. If I can help, write me an email.

Cheers
