Distros responsiveness to recent Firefox bug (armagadd-on-2.0)


Hello All,

Don't you think that the recent certificate problem occurred to Firefox (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1548973) is a good opportunity to compare the responsiveness of distributions ?

I can only post information for the distros I use :

Opensuse : problem was solved (here) on May, 7

Centos : still waiting

I know they depend on Redhat. So when we have info on the Redhat release, we'll have an estimate of the Centos lag.

AntiX & MX Linux had the new FF release within hours of it being released.

Slackware (14.2 and -current):
Mon May 6: updated to firefox-60.6.2esr
Thu May 9: updated again to firefox-60.6.3esr
(Slackware is distributing the esr releases only, but these came within the day of the official release by mozilla OF that esr version).

I checked the Opensuse RPM timestamp : May, 6 11:02 UTC

That is 17:35 hours after the Mozilla's firefox-60.6.2esr.tar.bz2 timestamp.

Ubuntu 18.04
66.0.4: Mon, 06 May 2019 11:54:39 +0200 (w)

66.0.5: not yet, it seems, unless the changelog and package info haven't been brought up to date.

Mint 19.x
66.0.4: don't know the exact datetime because has now been removed from repos but came through to my machine 2019-May-09 01:50. That is a heck of a delay to be honest. I received the earlier Ubuntu update because I have the Ubuntu version of firefox* pinned at the same level as the Mint version, which is not the default.

66.0.5: 2019-May-09 05:37:40 (w)

hehe, and people question if Slackware is still alive or maintained. It's usually the first to issue serious security updates.

Got the Centos correction today.

More than 3 weeks without Firefox extensions. This clearly disqualifies Centos on the desktop. But we already knew.

Note that they jumped from 60.6.1 to 60.7.0, ahead of Opensuse still at 60.6.3. Go figure.

Disclaimer : the ramblings in my post today are based on availability at the workstations here. I didn't check the timestamps elsewhere.
