Re: Firefox 60esr on Stretch ?

Hello Julien,

Maybe this question need to be made on debian-metors or pkg-mozilla-maintainer list.

I think will be good wait until EOL  before change to 60. I think that the first months of 60ers will be a little unstable.

debian-devel is the wrong place for your questions.

I expect nothing much different from previous ESR cycles: stretch will
move to 60 after 52 goes EOL in September.
