I have Firefox ESR v.52.8.0esr-1~deb8u1 from repos.
Actually 52.8 with security updates.
Never worked properly, for me.

I tested IceCat with most addons disabled (except spyblock and encrypt the web.
Of course I tested it extensively at Safe Mode (with all addons disabled).

Always. From launching it since closing it.
