 > I wonder if Mozilla corrected the build-tools issues in Firefox 52+,
 I'll take a look at that and see if we can backport an easy patch (we can
 easily write our own patch, too).

 Okay, no, they were using the same versions [0] until last year [1]. Now I
 wonder if Google recently changed which version of build-tools they
 provide. If Google stopped supporting build-tools-23.0.3 with android-
 sdk-r24.0.1 then that adds some complexity for us. When I looked into this
 last night, I found the the manifest downloaded with sdk-r24.0.1 does not
 contain build-tools-23.0.3 [2], but the manifest downloaded with
 sdk-r25.2.5 does contain it [3].

 I think patching |mach bootstrap| so it fetches build-tools-23.0.1 (for
 the next few months) is the easiest solution.
