Thank you for the links. Somehow firefox 50.1.0-1 is not reachable
through the standard snapshot search.

But the important thing: firefox 50 works on sparc64, while firefox 59
gives a bus error.

This aligns with what NetBSDs Martin Husemann is reporting. Firefox 52
is the last non-rust version to work for now. All above is currently
not working.
Sadly debian seems to have left out firefox52, so i am stuck with
firefox50 for now.

I also couldn't get firefox52 to compile via pkgsrc on debian, while
it was no problem on NetBSD/sparc64. Will have to analyze this deeper,
but this is not a topic for debian.
