On plasma, .desktop file generated by updating firefox-beta-bin overwrites any customizations done by the user. Additionally, the pinned taskbar icon becomes unlinked from open windows, so I end up with one pinned firefox-beta icon on my taskbar when firefox-beta isn't running and two firefox-beta icons on my taskbar when firefox-beta is running. Unpinning the 'old' icon and pinning the icon for the active firefox-beta window fixes this behaviour until the next update.

Google-chrome is good enough, but we can't let it monopolize the browser market. That would be bad,so I support Firefox.

@symen thanks for your reply! I don't know how I ended up with a corrupted package. However, I uninstalled it and re-installed it and it worked. I'm sorry for the noise here.

@humitos Are you sure this is a build issue ?

It looks like you tried to install a package that did not finish building, E.g. you cancelled a previous build at the "package" step, or you had no space left at this step. Then you tried to upgrade again and makepkg picked up the corrupted package.

I tried upgrading this package today and I found these errors:

error: could not extract /opt/firefox-beta/libxul.so (Truncated zstd input)
error: problem occurred while upgrading firefox-beta-bin
==> NOTE1: This installs side-by-side with extra/firefox
==> NOTE2: The launcher is called: 'firefox-beta'
error: could not commit transaction
error: failed to commit transaction (transaction aborted)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

The binary firefox-beta-bin is not available anymore after the upgrade.
