Branch: CURRENT, Version: 64.0.2, Package name: firefox-64.0.2, Maintainer: ryoon

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

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.

Log message:
firefox: fix .mk file inclusion order issue

bsd.prefs.mk was being included after dependent variables it provides
were referenced, which meant PYTHON_VERSION_DEFAULT wasn't actually
being checked. (No revision bump, because this didn't prevent anything
from building, it's relevant only to those who customize pkgsrc build

Update to 64.0

    Better recommendations: You may see suggestions in regular browsing mode for \ 
new and relevant Firefox features, services, and extensions based on how you use \ 
the web (for US users only)

    Enhanced tab management: You can now select multiple tabs from the tab bar \ 
and close, move, bookmark, or pin them quickly and easily

    Easier performance management: The new Task Manager page found at \ 
about:performance lets you see how much energy each open tab consumes and \ 
provides access to close tabs to conserve power

    Improved performance for Mac and Linux users, by enabling link time \ 
optimization (Clang LTO). (Clang LTO was enabled for Windows users in Firefox \ 

    More seamless sharing on Windows: Windows users can now share web pages \ 
using the native sharing experience. You can access Share in the Page Actions \ 

    Added option to remove add-ons using the context menu on their toolbar buttons

    New for enterprise users: Updated the policy engine on macOS to allow using \ 
configuration profiles to customize Firefox for enterprise deployments

    Various security fixes

    RSS feed preview and live bookmarks are available only via add-ons

    TLS certificates issued by Symantec are no longer trusted by Firefox. \ 
Website operators are strongly encouraged to replace any remaining Symantec TLS \ 
certificates as soon as possible.

    about:crashes has been redesigned to make it clear when a crash is being \ 
submitted to Mozilla, as well as being clear that removing crashes locally does \ 
not remove them from crash-stats.mozilla.com

    The macOS keyboard shortcut to add "www" and ".com" to a \ 
URL is now ctrl-enter instead of [apple]-enter
