Comment (by renodr):

 I noticed a small oddity while working on building Firefox. For some
 reason, audioipc_client's rust crate will fail to compile, but if I run
 the build again, it will build and continue without hassle.

 For this reason, I have the following in my script:

 {{{
 ./mach build --verbose
 # The above build will fail due to a problem with audioipc_client
 ./mach build --verbose &&
 }}}

 After this, it takes about half an hour to complete. Not too bad at -j4.

 After this lands in SVN, I'm going to update my laptop to Firefox 66.0.5
 and update my 8.4 system as well. Assuming all goes well with the standard
 8.4 system, I'll modify the errata and do a post to the lists regarding
 the Addons issue.

 NOTE: For anyone who uses Firefox-66.0.3 and earlier, the "Study" that
 Mozilla sent out via "normandy" (their automated hotfix framework which
 somehow is enabled on our builds!), the certificate bundle/hotfix that was
 sent out as "Study" on Saturday/Sunday will expire soon, necessitating an
 upgrade to Firefox-66.0.5 or higher if you want to use your addons. That's
 the primary reason why I will write a note to the lists.
