Firefox has an ESR brach with focus on stability. It would be great to add package for Firefox ESR, so that users can choose between feature (Firefox mainline) or stability (Firefox ESR).

Firefox ESR can also be used as fallback browser, in case Firefox doesn't work as expected (think of it as linux-lts)

Additional info:
* package version(s): firefox 52.0.2-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Read the Firefox ESR faq[1] and decide whether an ESR package for Firefox worth or not.

This task depends upon
