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.

This package provides Firefox 68 ESR.

Log message:
firefox68: Remove hack to disable multiprocess mode

This was working around the lack of pshared semaphores on older NetBSD
releases, and restrictions on which process can destroy semaphores
on newer NetBSD releases.

However, we've switched to a new NetBSD-exclusive hack in www/firefox
where we force the use of the tiled rendering mode. This copies what
Firefox does on macOS, which has similar limitations on cross-process
semaphores. The discovery of this was a joint effort between maya
and me.

This avoids several bugs:

1) Multiprocess mode being outright broken on older NetBSD releases
2) Multiprocess mode leaking semaphores and eventually hitting open
   file limits on newer NetBSD releases
