There is also #909498, explicitly for armhf.

I pulled 60.2.2esr-1 (and its dependencies) from unstable and it runs
stably since a few weeks (actually initially 60.2.1esr-1).
I also tried just upgrading the dependencies to the versions required by
60.2.2esr-1 from unstable and keeping 60.2.2esr-1~deb9u1 from stable,
but with that FF kept crashing.
What I find confusing: The changelogs of firefox-esr for stable and
unstable essentially contain the same items (since v52), but the one
reproducibly crashes, and the other reproducibly works. Given that I've
tried them in the same environment (versions of dependencies, kernel,
shell environment), they must be essentially different, or am I wrong?
