I agree with this opinion, and also what Dan Ritter replied.  Firefox is

really all that secure are they?

Well, I hope the Debian team ignore your opinions, take note of any
bug reports, and continue to support FF for all the happy Debian users
who are using it to do important work.


Well packages in main should not rely on contrib or non-free?  If you need
non-free or contrib to run firefox-esr on stretch to do your important
work, then that is my point.  You hack it with a hosts file, okay that
doesn;t count as a pkg, but the default pkg is a piece of insecure
garbage

@bw what browser do you recommend for Debian Stretch?
