www/firefox68 - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Web browser with support for extensions (version 68ESR)

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

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. It is now unsupported and is
provided only for older NetBSD releases (8.x) that cannot run newer
