Re: [opensuse-factory] Next steps for Firefox on TW
Christian Boltz composed on 2017-08-12 00:34 (UTC+0200):

BTW: AFAIK Debian ships firefox and firefox-esr. I don't know the details,
but a quick look indicates that they don't have conflicts. I know for
sure [1] that Debian uses /usr/lib/firefox-esr/ paths, so it's likely
that they allow parallel installation.

What kind of quick look did you take? It does not look to me like Debian ships
in parallel, at least, not through standard repos in its latest LTS release:

# grep RETT /etc/os-release
PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
# apt install firefox firefox-esr
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package firefox is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'firefox' has no installation candidate
# apt search ire | grep ox | grep -v l10n

Do you know the Debian maintainer so that you could ask if/how they > handle
the user profile? If not, I can try to get you in contact via the
Debian AppArmor maintainers ;-)
