That's great news. Could you post your instructions? This would allow
others here to help out, considering most of us don't have ARM boards
with much RAM or 20 hours of patience.

This also opens up the possibility of making a build on Debian 9 to
match up better with Raspbian Stretch, rather than having to resort to
14.04 binaries there.

and the _sk_xor__vfp4 that I hope to get fixed by compiling with clang .

It appears that way, although worth noting that the crash at startup
also happens in Firefox 57, specific to the 16.04 build. You can check
that out by doing wget
http://launchpadlibrarian.net/352606050/firefox_57.0.4+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1_armhf.deb
and running it.

Yeah, it appears to get around the crash at startup (before any window
appears, and thus before the SkJumper part) it might be necessary to
build under Ubuntu 14.04 toolchains (gcc 4.8, libc 2.19).
