Re: [opensuse-factory] Next steps for Firefox on TW
Wolfgang Rosenauer composed on 2017-08-11 03:51 (UTC+0200):

How to handle parallel installations? Do we want to allow that?

No!

As a Mozilla user since Netscape 2.02, I find upstream's release often policy is
the antithesis of stability. Too much changes too fast. I don't believe enough
people are testing since the quick release cycles began, and particularly since
the foundational component overhaul explosion began (Rust, GTK3, Servo, CSS4,
chromification) and GTK3 building began. ESR in TW and latest only in BS:Mozilla
gets my vote if I have one.

I use latest only for bug testing. SeaMonkey is my primary. ESR in latest and
prior versions are my more used Firefoxes. I mostly keep no less than 5 profiles
running at once, each with task sets that minimally overlap.

http://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1022830 is a usability problem here
without a practical solution.
