I see, but in any case I believe the backport people will not go beyond version 52 due to the rustc compiler issue.
Seen that you plan to go on further, is there any way to add "your" firefox repo to the apt sources so that it gets updated automatically?

I will try and keep an alsa-compatible version updated as long as I can when it's no longer available in a standard repository. I'm reluctant to just reinvent the wheel when the same version is already in another repository, especially when it involves a rather tedious manual upload of 94 source packages, one by one.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: GIMP 2.10, Pale Moon 27.9.1, Enlightenment 0.22, Calligra 3.1, VLC 3.0.2, Firefox 60.0, Krita 4.0.3
