Hi All,

Here is Firefox ESR 52.4 for the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017.

Download: firefox-esr_52.4.0esr-1_linux_powerpc.tar.gz

You can start it with ./start_firefox.sh and you can use start_mppcr_firefox.sh for a desktop launcher.

Unfortunately I can't open Google anymore.

Maybe I have to update the package

ca-certificates

https://packages.debian.org/de/sid/all/ ... s/filelist

https://packages.debian.org/sid/ca-certificates

Hi All,

I installed the latest ca-certificates package on Debian Sid today. Unfortunately it doesn't solve the problem. Firefox ESR 52.5.2 works but I can't open some websites.

Hi All,

I set up 'network.http.spdy.enabled.http2' to false in 'about:config' and all websites work.

Hi All,

I uploaded the new Firefox ESR today. It works on ubuntu MATE 16.04.3 LTS but unfortunately it doesn't work reliable on the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017.

Download: firefox-52.5.2esr-1-32-bit-linux-powerpc.tar.gz

You have to set up 'network.http.spdy.enabled.http2' to false in 'about:config'.

Cheers,
Christian
