Branch: CURRENT, Version: 67.0.1, Package name: firefox-67.0.1, 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*: Reduce SUN_BUFFER_FRAMES back down to 32.

This was a precaution but actually seems to introduce frame drops
at the default audio latency.

Log message:
firefox: Add sun audio backend and make it a default where supported.

This replaces the OSS backend with something that passes the unit tests,
supports additional channels, and supports recording. It will be included
with future versions of Firefox.

Tested with:

* YouTube audio-video sync test
* about:support device detection
* WebRTC microphone recording (using an USB microphone)

Note: you can select an audio backend using the about:config variable
media.cubeb.backend. This can be set to options such as sun/pulse/oss.

Let me know if you still need to use the oss backend. It's very
incomplete, buggy, and FreeBSD has already removed it - ideally we
should eventually.

firefox: follow rjs@ commit to libaom: nasm is mostly a tool for x86
assembly, so I'm going to assume it's only needed for x86 builds on
firefox as well.

Update to 67.0.1

In this version, Firefox helps you get better acquainted with our
family of products and services through a new experience that
includes a set of web pages and in-browser notifications. All
Firefox products and services have powerful privacy protection
built in; joining Firefox provides users with additional features
and capabilities. These experiences will highlight these benefits.
The new experience will roll out for English (en-US, en-GB, en-CA),
French (fr) and German (de) browser users today, expanding to other
languages in the coming weeks.

    With the new experience, there will be an opportunity for users
    to opt in for test-driving upcoming products during registration.

For new users, this release will come with Enhanced Tracking
Protection (ETP), stronger privacy protections on by default as
“Standard” in the Privacy & Security setting. Firefox Enhanced
Tracking Protection will now automatically block third-party tracking
cookies that appear on the Disconnect list. Firefox will continue
to block third-party tracking loads in private windows, as it has
done since version 42.

    For existing users, while ETP will be rolling out by default
    in the coming months, you can turn this feature on today under
    Preferences, select Privacy & Security to select the Custom
    menu, and under the Content Blocking section, mark the Cookies
    checkbox and choose “Third-party trackers” in the Cookies pull
    down menu.
