Re: Ubuntu Mate with Raspbian kernel: New Firefox 55.0.1 crashes on startup

The Raspberry Pi Foundation and Raspberry Pi (Trading) Ltd. have a massive investment in Raspbian. Why would they want to throw that away?

Is it really worth replying to this? All I requested was a Ubuntu sub forum. It's a pretty simple request.

A vine can wither through neglect. It can also wither because some vandal pours glyphosate on it.

Ubuntu is refocusing its business and IoT is one of the things it sees as the future of the business. It's madness if the raspberry pi foundation doesn't take advantage of this.
Total FUD

Ubuntu is like Raspbian based of Debian.

IoT can use various Operating System, and IoT is just a catch phrase.

The volunteers involved in this Forum mainly use Raspbian as it is the RPF/RPT defacto Distro and the RPF pay for the Forum Hosting.

It is not unreasonable to expect a developer to support his own software and in actual fact has been pointed out U-M does so...

If the developers Forum is crap then complain to them not to us...

In a nutshell please accept that griping is a total waste of forum space....

Ah yes. A bit of Roundup to kill off some non-native invasive species... ;)

@Ignatiamus @guy67400,

I posted a workaround to run Firefox 57 Quantum via MultiArch, although that's only suitable for the Pi 3.

Ironically it's straightforward to do on Ubuntu MATE but would likely be difficult on Raspbian.

Installed Firefox, Firefox ESR, and Thunderbird on Raspian
Firefox ESR seems to work. Firefox and Thunderbird crash on launch. I could be tempted to just get rid of Firefox and stick to Firefox-ESR, but that still will not solve the Thunderbird issue.

So, since the last post here was a while ago, is there any progress on this issue?
