That's not enough information to help you debug the problem. I always need
an error message. Normally, a Firefox that managed to build should mostly
work fine as the Javascript engine is run during build to transpile some
Javascript code.

If Firefox is installable with the dependencies you pulled without forcing
dpkg to override dependencies, it should work. If it doesn't, please run
Firefox from the command line and provide me with the error message.

There shouldn't be any. I upstreamed all patches.
