Re: Firefox ESR with NPAPI

First of all, this mailing list is specifically for issues with Debian's website (which this isn't, not really).  I reccomend emailing debian-user in the
future, as that list is specialized for users of Debian.

It looks like what happened was Jessie got a LTS (long term service)
update, which caused them to drop ARM support in Jesse.

I highly recomend migrating away from NPAPI. It has been deprecated since
2013, and is a significant security risk.

However, since you likley can't, you can find old releases of debian on
archive.debian.org.  In this case, the link
has the .deb you are looking for.

Addtionally, there is a newer version of firefox-esr (still in the 52.x
esr branch), 52.9.0.  It should still support NPAPI, but it contains
several security fixes. That can be found at this link

No problem.
