[Salix-main] firefox 45.1.1esr in 14.2

George Vlahavas
Yesterday, I upgraded firefox to 45.1.1esr, after Tim discovered a nasty
memory leak in the latest 38esr we previously had.

For a short period of maybe 2-3 minutes max, the 32bit package in the 14.2
repository, and only the 14.2 repository, was broken. I quickly fixed it
but kept the package name exactly the same:

I'm now thinking that maybe one of the mirrors had the time to sync in
those 2-3 minutes and would then carry the broken package for several
hours. If you somehow find the firefox package broken after an update,

slapt-get --clean
slapt-get -u
slapt-get --reinstall -i mozilla-firefox

and you should now get the correct one. It should have the md5sum:

There never was an issue with 14.1 repositories and earlier, so if you
don't have the 14.2alpha installed, there's nothing to worry about.

Mobile security can be enabling, not merely restricting. Employees who
bring their own devices (BYOD) to work are irked by the imposition of MDM
restrictions. Mobile Device Manager Plus allows you to control only the
apps on BYO-devices by containerizing them, leaving personal data untouched!
