14.0 > Network > mozilla-firefox-esr (17.0.1)

Mozilla Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release) is meant for 
organizations that manage their client desktops, including schools,
businesses and other institutions that want to offer Firefox.

- This package is not compatible/substitutes Slackware's
mozilla-firefox package: install only one of the two.

- The package generated from this SlackBuild will be branded
like an official Slackware package, so it cannot
be redistributed.

- This script supports PGO building: it will need double the time
and disk space to complete but at the end you will have an
optimized build of firefox. This will work at its best if
run from the same host that will run the final binary, but
speed/reactivity will benefit also if run elsewhere.
To enable it, launch the script with PGO=yes

- To run this SlackBuild you will need ~4 Gb of free disk space
(~8 Gb for a PGO-enabled build) and if you don't want to hit
swap during the run you will need 5 Gb of free RAM.
