I have found the schedule of TC submissions occurs every two weeks, another reason I'm happy with firefox_getLatest extension.

Hmm, maybe you could create a firefox_getLatestESR extension which does the same as firefox_getLatest but gives you the latest ESR version instead of the latest standard release version?

It's possible to use firefox_getLatest extension which has that option using the manual mode of operation, simply have to specify;

Start manual mode from the terminal with
Code: [Select]
firefox_getLatest.sh -m
Then when prompted:
Code: [Select]
45.0esr
But I hear you, a dedicated updater might be simpler

Yes, a dedicated one would definitely be better and would also mean less work for you, since you would no longer have to maintain the firefox-ESR.tcz each time there is a new ESR release :).

So, I would suggest to remove firefox-ESR.tcz and replace it with a dedicated firefox_getLatestESR.tcz.
