[fix] Firefox crashes on startup
#1
Latest versions of firefox crash on startup, at least firefox-esr-60 and up

For now a fix is to use the last "good" version and hold it to prevent it being overwritten:

Code:
wget https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20180701T205743Z/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/firefox-esr_52.9.0esr-1~deb9u1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i firefox*
sudo apt-mark hold firefox-esr

similar fix for chromium:

yo, I just wanted to add that you can get a patched version of firefox 59 working on TinkerOS by simply downloading file from dropbox.com/s/17ypog6btdq4wj7/firefox_59.0.1%2Bbuild1-0ubuntu1_armhf.deb?dl=0, then opening a terminal and typing:
cd Downloads
and then
sudo dpkg -i firefox_59.0.1+build1-0ubuntu1_armhf.deb

firefox should then appear in the internet menu and work fine
I don't think that hardware acceleration works, so is youtube probably a no-go
