Genuine question. Am I missing something here guys? Is there a difference between this version of Waterfox and the original ?, because I installed the original from here > https://www.waterfoxproject.org/en-US/w ... w/?scene=1 into /opt and have been running it like this since January of this year. I've had no problems with it, and have it set to notify me of updates, which I install through the browser, and they always upgrade without a hitch..

Not much difference, except ours is built from source on a Stretch base and is now in our repo for 64-bit.
