Summary0004416: Please Provide a Native non-ESR Package for Firefox
DescriptionKali's default firefox package installs Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release). Unfortunately, the version of Firefox ESR currently available in 2017.3 doesn't support headless mode:

$ firefox -headless

Simply opens a GUI window. I've addressed this with Mozilla and the following is their response:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1423640

Please provide a native Kali package that allows for the installation of Firefox latest (non-ESR) in addition to firefox-esr.

I'm sorry but we won't do that. You will have to wait for the next ESR release. Or you can pick "firefox" (non ESR) out of Debian Unstable.
