Didier here,


Which version have you tried?

I ask because if you did a regular upgrade with slapt-get you should run
Firefox-52.8.0ESR that I uploaded on the repository on 20 may 2018 and
that seems to be as accessible as the previous ones. This is a bug  fix
and maintainance release as noted in tha ChangeLog:

Or, did yiu install a newer Firefox from a third party repository? If
that is the case, please tell which verion it is and from which repo
you got it?
