Dear TW/i586 users and hackers,
The latest submission of Firefox that reached Factory unfortunately declates i586 as an excluded arch. The build fails on this architecture.
This means unless somebody steps up and helps the Firefox maintainer with relevant fixes to get this back in shape, there won't be a Firefox build left for i586 users.
I hope there will be somebody around to help out and keep this alive.
FWIW, it builds on Debian unstable on i686, so in general, it should be possible.
See: https://buildd.debian.org/status/package.php?p=firefox&suite=sid https://buildd.debian.org/status/package.php?p=firefox&suite=sid
it's always possible by patching. This is what Debian did in that case as well.
So I can import that patch as well meanwhile. But it's always a timing issue. I want to submit FF on release day and very often it's not possible to get a fix in time.
