www/firefox52 - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Web browser with support for extensions (version 52ESR)

Mozilla Firefox is a free, open-source and cross-platform web browser
for Windows, Linux, MacOS X and many other operating systems.

It is fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web
browsers, such as tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up
windows.

Firefox also offers excellent bookmark and history management, and it
can be extended by developers using industry standards such as XML,
CSS, JavaScript, C++, etc. Many extensions are available.

This package provides Firefox 52 ESR. It is now unsupported and is
provided only for platforms where the Rust toolchain required in
newer Firefox versions is problematic.
