firefox-ESR depends on gtk3, not gtk2./firefox-ESR实际依赖gtk3,不是gtk2。

Also, did you try firefox_getLatest.tcz?  run it to keep updating with latest version or simply to get firefox extension

Using firefox_getLatest.tcz, I was unable to get Firefox version 53.0, but unfortunately wiped out my 52.x version with the alternate 43.x version.

I'm not clear from the release notes if the 32-bit linux version of Firefox is no longer available, or if there's some glitch in the way Mozilla set up the update.

I'm switching to the ESR version of Firefox in the repo (45.6.0). Per the Mozilla website there is a 52.0esr version available. If indeed 53.0 and subsequent versions no longer support 32-bit linux 52.x will be the latest version I can use.

Maybe time for a hardware upgrade (currently running TC on a 2010 box)!

Yes thanks for the reminder, I need to update ESR versions, but only tc-8.x repo will be updated with ESR

BTW you know you can download any firefox version using firefox_getLatest :)  use " firefox_getLatest.sh -m " and type any version esr, beta or other at the prompt

Thanks for the reply. I was able to download version 53.0 using the -m option in a terminal (re-ran the script in usr/local/bin after running the app from the OnDemand menu, which still downloaded version 43.0).

Thane,  ok I think you must have been having an internet issue..  Because in case firefox_getLatest could not determine the latest firefox version it searches elsewhere as a last resort for the version number.

v43.0.4 was a fallback version number which I keep online in case all else fails (normally updated but had forgot, my bad...), usually caused by some internet outage or change of http address.  I have updated the fallback to 53.0 now.  Thanks for the reminder.

The real problem is the internet connection, since I am able to access the official firefox version web site without issue and your script is searching for and using the fallback file.

I agree it's not a problem with firefox_getLatest, which I've used to get a number of earlier updates. I've occasionally seen a little flakiness in Firefox updates (e.g. Help/About Firefox indicating updates are available, but the download site not having them) so I'm inclined to think something's out of whack on Mozilla's end. I'll try the default getLatest processing again when the next update comes out (likely a .0.1 coming soon if past upgrades are true to form). Thanks for your help.
