Not sure we can really do something about it, but firefox bin32 always tries to load plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (on top of the ones in lib32) which creates many problems when there is for example several java plugins… (bin32 and normal) the 64 bits ones kind of take the precedence for whatever reason…

The only way I found to make java work on firefox 32 bits was to temporarily rename /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins…

Is there anything we can do to improve this situation?

Still works; just have to bump the pkgver and rename the build hook to package to comply with makepkg changes. See for an updated PKGBUILD.

I don't have an internet connection available for the moment. I'll be back in two weeks and I'll update the package then. Sorry for the inconveniences.

You request this in the AML:

Just send a mail to:

It'd probably help to check out other people's remove/orphan/rename requests from this month:

I don't know, should it? How do you rename the package?

techlive commented on 2011-12-20 04:44

Should this package be renamed to bin32-firefox?

this package is broken for me, because it can't even DOWNLOAD the dependencies...

Updated to upstream. I can't build Firefox with a multilib compiler (it tries to build 64-bit specific code), so we stay with a binary distribution. I edited the startup script to correctly detect the Flash plugin if you installed flashplugin from [multilib], so you have Flash in either 64-bit (via nspluginwrapper) and 32-bit Firefox. This should apply to others 32-bit-only plugins.
