@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@everyone Please stop flagging this out of date without valid reasons, or for that matter without actually trying to build this.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.

@blitz Could you please provide more details than a broken link as for why you're flagging this as out-of-date?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

@morosa: Works for me, so I removed the flag. Can you provide a better description than "Wrong url"?

@passcod: Mozilla changed the URL to Nightly to https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/. Might want to update this.

Thanks for the notice @Vash63 :) Fixed now.

This stopped working a few days ago. Fails to download the tarball from Mozilla.

@SolarAquarion I see the problem and am working on it. Your modified version doesn't actually work according to what this PKGBUILD is trying to do, but thanks anyway.
