Hurray! I broke with source-based FF a few weeks ago, when the most
recent rust update came through. Rust is another huge download and I
have bandwidth restrictions. So I just removed FF and all its build
dependencies, went to the Mozilla site and downloaded it from there. It
will be nice to be able to do the same thing using prt-get. After all,
we do it for Libreoffice and JRE, don't we.
If any members of GCHQ are reading this, shame on you! I fought for
your right to belong to a trade union and now you are taking away my
right to privacy?
