You need glibc 2.28, at least for the last version of Waterfox..

In beowulf:
 # apt-cache policy libc6
  Installed: 2.28-10
   Candidate: 2.28-10
   Version table:
  *** 2.28-10 500
         500 http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf/main arm64 Packages
         100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
If you are in beowulf, then everything should work nicely :)

IF you are *NOT* in beowulf( ascii ):
    1. You can upgrade to Beowulf,
    2. The last resource would be to compile from Sources the glibc in ascii..

The unique critique, that I may find, for 'Waterfox',
Is that they don't have a i686 release :(
