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 http://rpm.pbone.net/
  • 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.
