It will be in 7.9.2009 as an update.  Should be in CR sometime within a
week.  It is in git.centos.org now:


I released the CR up to 7.9.2009 GA for x86_64, aarch64, ppc64le yesterday:


Status of 7.9.2009:

Keep an eye on the CR Announce list for firefox 78 in el7 .. and keep an
eye on the Building_7 for 7.9,.2009 status.  Probably 14 or so days
(estimate) to a full release.
