Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 69, Firefox ESR 68.1, and Firefox ESR
- switched package to ESR branch

A question regarding firefox-esr:

I had so far installed the firefox-esr package, firefox-esr-52.9.0-2.125.x86_64
This is because I need some plugin for Net ID using some gemalto card reader,
for swedish government logins ( That's basically the only thing
I use ff for, my browser is vivaldi. The plugin uses the old API that had
been removed from main FF.

Today when upgrading I saw it was going to remove the esr version, so I locked
it before it could be kicked out. Phew.

Now I see this switch to ESR version in the changelog, and I have no real idea
what to make of that. Would that new ESR version support the respective
plugins? Or is that (IIRC old netscape) API also disabled on those?
