It installed fine on my system. It did want me to confirm the change of the repository (is that normal?). It runs rather well and I have a feeling that it is somewhat faster than Firefox. And running it with firejail, no problem.

OK, it's cooking on high right now (12 threads).

Built, installed, tested a bit--seems to be OK. Uploading for main repo now.

Waterfox has been updated to the current 56.2.10 in our main repo.

Changes/fixes include:
* Latest security fixes up to Firefox ESR 60.7
* Added new Mozilla certificates to be able to install add-ons from AMO again
* Waterfox now identifies as Waterfox once again!
- This fixes issues with repeat CAPTCHAs, hooray!
- Websites that require a vanilla Firefox user agent will get one, so far: web.whatsapp.com, amazon., netflix.com, chase.com. Please request if a website you visit doesn’t recognise the Waterfox user agent.
- This should stop YouTube from doing A/B tests that break on Waterfox.
