@Ugion: Please try to understand that this is a package that DYNAMICALLY GETS THE LATEST NIGHTLY AT BUILD TIME. That's why it's called "always-nightly". That's why the version is 99.0a1, and not 50.0a1 which is what Nightly is at right now. Maybe try to get firm hold on the two neurons floating somewhere in your brain and connect them together.

@everyone Please stop flagging this out of date without valid reasons, or for that matter without actually trying to build this. I use this every day, on several machines. If this didn't work, I would either be *very* distracted or something subtle would be wrong. Thanks.

Am I the only person who is having to run updpkgsums on this every morning? It used to work flawlessly until just a couple of days before the Firefox move up from v53 to v54. But now, every morning, the checks on the .tar.bz2 file and the .txt file fail.

I'd recommend adding `StartupWMClass=Firefox` to the .desktop file for the non-safe-mode launcher (and removing the StartupNotify=false line) - without it GNOME3 seems to think the /opt/firefox-nightly/firefox binary isn't associated with the .desktop file.

@SolarAquarion I've pushed something I believe will fix your issue, can you give it a try?

@passcod pacaur has issues verifying checksums if the download name doesn't keep on changing

SolarAquarion commented on 2016-09-20 20:35

@passcod

change source=("${_srcurl}/${_file}.tar.bz2"
"${_srcurl}/${_file}.txt"

to source=("$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.bz2"::"${_srcurl}/${_file}.tar.bz2"
"$pkgname-$pkgver.txt"::"${_srcurl}/${_file}.txt"

it fixes pacaur issues seemingly

@SolarAquarion Sorry, I don't follow (mornings...) what do you want me to do? :)

Can you append "firefox_$pkgver.tar.bz2::" to the source file or whatever you rather use

@blitz Could you please provide more details than a broken link as for why you're flagging this as out-of-date? Unflagging.

@passcod I do not know, now everything is ok.
