Bug 1527534 got fixed in Firefox 66 but not backported to ESR 60 because Mozilla is not shipping any mobile browser based on ESR. But we do and should backport the patch.

bug_29843 (https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/gk/tor-browser-build.git/commit/?h=bug_29843&id=b619af79d04bde9313d8a4a2696c4a5a06c60175) in my tor-browser-build repo has the backport. I went that route because I don't want to have the desktop platforms exposed to the backport as it did not get any ESR testing on Mozilla's infra (Mozilla did not backport the patch themselves as they are not shipping mobile based on ESR).

It is compiling and the build is running on my phone. However, I did not get WebGL to run to further test the patch. Not sure what the problem is...

Seems reasonable. It's a little ugly, but I agree this is a safer method of applying the patch than applying it on all platforms. I haven't tested the patch yet, but it looks good. I'll confirm tomorrow.

I can't easily test this on an older Android version due to #29906, but it works without any apparent issues on newer versions - therefore lgtm.

Thanks, it should be in the next nightly so you could easily double-check that way :) Anyway, merged to tor-browser-build's master (commit 3ba210064197298ad1c54ca74f086a67653109a2).
