Firefox 48 on Linux Fedora 24

Firefox broke today after an update to Firefox 48.0.1 which was really annoying being my primary work tool, keywords:
The application has been updated, but your version of SQLite is too old and the application cannot run.
The fix for me, for today:
  • Browse to
  • Do an advanced search. Tick only 'Fedora Other' and search for
  • sqlite-libs-3.14
  • sqlite-3.14
  • Download each of the above rpms for Fedora 25 - they work on Fedora 24
  • I did:
  • sudo rpm -e sqlite-devel
  • sudo rpm -Uvh sqlite-3.14.1-1.fc25.x86_64.rpm sqlite-libs-3.14.1-1.fc25.x86_64.rpm
That's it. Firefox works again.

Nagrestconf Web Site is down

My apologies to anyone unable to access the Nagrestconf Web Site. It's hosted on Sourceforge and it seems to be down - since last night, for the UK at least. Hopefully it will be back up soon.
