Re: [opensuse-factory] Next steps for Firefox on TW
Hi,

First of all, many thanks for taking care of this. I just installed
version 55 from the mozilla repo and it's blazing fast!

- there is one main question which I'm a bit undecided still:
How to handle parallel installations? Do we want to allow that?
This will need some patching work since otherwise both will run on the
same profile. That is also the reason why switching between both is
dangerous (remember the incompatible statement above).
There is a technical way to circumvent this (still to be verified) by
changing the profile patch for ESR away from .mozilla to something
else (.mozilla-esr?) but this will be an openSUSE specific thing!

My suggestion would be to disallow parallel installation.

As for warning the users, maybe for a transition period ( 2 weeks? )
we can present a "license agreement" when upgrading the firefox
package version 55 or newer, similar to what we do for some
Mesa/nouveau stuff, telling users what the consequences are.

I am not sure though if it's possible to show the license agreement
only when upgrading. For fresh installs it would be useless and
annoying.
