(and due to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1089411 had to roll-back the firefox version to 29.0.1) http://ftp.barfooze.de/pub/sabotage/bin/ firefox-29.0.1-arm.tar.xz 2014-Oct-28 22:28:55 22.1M so as long as libpng 1.6.x is no hard requirement for a major package it's better to stick with 1.5.x --JS
