 > I uploaded a new version (v3) of the patch: `0001-Bug-21907-fix-runtime-
 > In this version of the patch we are backing out more code that is for
 glib > 2.28. I think the reason why we did not need to back out this code
 in ESR45 is that the file `hb-glib.cc` was not built at all in that
 version, but was added to the build with the patch for mozilla bug
 > After doing a build with this patch, I am able to run the browser on
 Centos 6.

 Add I assume it is running on other Linux distros with newer library
 versions fine as well, right?
