understood and accepted in relation of firefox.

was not asking for just 40.x, which used as above.

to be more exacting, if should have need for some other package,
is there a site which archives centos packages?

for example, in attempting to get vivaldi browser working, even with
latest of releases, there are early *.so files showing as missing.

tried a web search, no hits.

with moz devs futzing around with firefox as they have been lately,
it would be nice to have another browser handy for sites that
firefox does not handle.
