	Yes I've been using Firefox on FreeBSD for a very long time now,
always installed from packages. Currently I'm running Firefox 68.01 on
FreeBSD 12 with no problems at all.

	None of this.

	Not sure what this means, I usually start it from a small script
in .wmx (that's just how my window manager works) that just
runs /usr/local/bin/firefox. Just typing firefox at a command prompt also
works fine.

	Never seen that, and my home directory is NFS mounted.
