Branch: CURRENT, Version: 47.0nb1, Package name: firefox-47.0nb1, 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
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.

Changed
    FUEL (Firefox User Extension Library) has been removed. Add-ons relying on \ 
it will stop working.
    The browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand preference has been reset to its \ 
default value (true) to avoid e10s performance problems. Because faster is \ 
better!

    XRender is no longer used for rendering web content on Linux as this may \ 
cause a regression in remote X performance
