When I configured firefox the system did not complain about sqlite3 (I try to compile
Firefox 36) but it did complain about Python. It requires Python 2.7.X (I am using 2.7.8).
Also, it seems one needs pulse-audio and the latest (?) libjson-c. Since I do not have
the latest bits, thus I don't know if its there, but firefox requires a very recent autoconf.
And I can provide the patches I have created so far.
