Unlikely and IMHO unwanted (at least from my side) afacis, as other
answers already indicated. But that is not the reason for this mail.
Has anybody considered to package the ESR releases for Fedora or is the
general consensus "that doesn't make much sense, just leads to confusion
and is not worth the trouble". I now and then could need a parallel
installed Firefox ESR for a Webinterface that officially only supports
ESR releases. I can simply install one in my homedir, but it would be
nice to have it yum-installable from the stock Fedora repos (but the
problem does not bug me enough to submit a package myself).
