i was wondering how do i install firefox esr on point linux and well the point linux team offer firefox esr on there next release? the reason why i ask this is because firefox 35 has a serious memory leak and it's very bloated.

think it's subjective. I've been using for years and can't see any difference.
you can manually install firefox (download, unpack, make symlink etc) as I wrote before

thanks Peter for the firefox upgrade :good: .

but I'm wondering why not install firefox esr version instead the newest one. the version changes are twice less frequent. the functionality is almost the same (there is halo communicator but I've never used it).
