What is difference between "firefox" and "firefox-bin" in "firefox-60.9.0esr.tar.bz2"?
$ tar --list -jf ./firefox-60.9.0esr.tar.bz2 |grep -e '^firefox/firefox$' -e '^firefox/firefox-bin$'

It looks the small firefox binary is the initial loader that may check whether another instance is running and that starts firefox-bin to start the actual Firefox application.
