machine on which firefox, thunderbird, seamonkey, cc, pkg work:
11.0-CURRENT  #2
Wed Apr 20 2016
machine on which firefox has broken numeric input [ I cannot log into
the FreeBSD forum as my nickname has a "2" within it...
nor use browser search in firefox that searches for terms with
a "2" within the text field... jumps to another tab..., cc MAY be fixed, 
pkg still works only at v11,
seamonkey segfaults, thunderbird segfaults, otter-browser has bus 
error,  seamonkey won't build
due to maybe clang header files:
12.0-CURRENT #3

1200020   ( guess from strings on the kernel) ... (forgot to run uname 
when booted into the system)
1200020   ( guess from strings on the kernel)   "
and per pkg -vv, still v11...

Again, maybe a ${ABI} set of three files (FreeBSD.conf (2) , pkg.conf ) 
that I could use as a template
may fix the package issue and if that is fixed, could fix the 
seamonkey/thunderbird/firefox issues...
Precise documentation is lacking in the limited time I have to test 
solutions in forum and mailing
list posts.
