you can not have BOTH in the repos in a way that
the installation doses not conflict and you are
missing that switch between both will bring
you problems with your profile

YOU may be able to work around them with seperated profiles
99 out of 100 users are not and would damage their data

what is this for webinterface only supporting ESR?
why in the world should a WEBPAGE not work with a NEWER firefox?
