The latest update did not change the browser engine. We need an updated browser engine.

I mean seriously? For accessing individual sites? This is probably just some crappy regression that noone cares taking care of (for whatever reason)

Sites change their code during the time. Google+ for example is blocked on mobile webkit browsers that aren't safari. (Webcat, WebPirate, BB10 Browser, Tizen Browser) It worked quite good before.

Gecko is at version 38. And upstream long term support at version 52 already. So if we get 45 in one of the next updates we are still behind stuff and have to suffer the consequences of this.
