Message:

Firefox-59.0. I wish they still packaged release tarballs as firefox-NN.N and offered .tar.xz, but they don't. Please note that system cairo can no longer be used, and the libraries now install into an unversioned /usr/lib/firefox/ directory.

    77         The build times for this version of firefox (using stylo, the new CSS
    78         rendering code) seem to vary widely between different machines. On one
    79         old Intel i3 the build took considerably longer. The reason for this is
    80         not understood. A build with stylo disabled is typically 1 or 2 SBU
    81         quicker and needs 0.8GB less disk space.
