[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Package: firefox-esr
Version: 52.6.0esr-1~deb9u1

When trying to launch Firefox for the applications menu, seemingly nothing 
happens. Trying to run it in a terminal window (inside a desktop enivronment) 
produces the error message pasted below. Firefox ran just fine in Devuan 

(firefox-esr:14801): Gtk-ERROR **: GTK+ 2.x symbols detected. Using GTK+ 2.x 
and GTK+ 3 in the same process is not supported
ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 14806
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...
Trace/breakpoint trap
