    Here is a brief update on the Firefox web browser project done by
    Bitwise GmbH.
    You can follow the status here:

    While David Yeo and other people have done a very good job of keeping
    Firefox and Thunderbird and other Mozilla updated, but deep going
    maintance of Mozilla products for eCS has been running behind for
    years. Thats why so much time is now needed to get the code in good
    shape again!

    Its expected around the end of Augustus the first Firefox ESR 17 builds
    will be released for puvlic beta. With so called IPC support. With the code getting so much updates it
    will be easier to compile newer builds of Firefox.

    These updates should also greatly improve the stability of the Firefox.
