What's wrong is that my script still didn't work, and that your single comment takes up 24 lines.

Also, I don't get why do you show a tutorial, then conclude "BTW, what was the reason? I think this is extremely wrong."

@Det I have same issue:
==> Validating source files with sha512sums...
firefox-beta-bin.desktop ... Passed
firefox-beta-bin-safe.desktop ... Passed
==> Validating source_x86_64 files with sha512sums...
firefox-46.0b2.tar.bz2 ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!




According to documentation https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#Integrity you must use 'SKIP' instead empty string to skip integrity checking:
> You can also insert SKIP for a particular file, and its checksum will not be tested.

So after edit PKGBUILD:
-sha512sums_i686=('')
-sha512sums_x86_64=('')
+sha512sums_i686=('SKIP')
+sha512sums_x86_64=('SKIP')

it was successfully installed.


BTW, what was the reason to skip integrity checking? I think this is extremely wrong.

@CaptainMurica, please use Pastebin.

@Kalentia, if you'd look at the PKGBUILD or the commit log instead of guessing, you'd see that my script didn't create any SHA-512 sums at all.

@CaptainMurica same issue occurs here, it seems either the checksums weren't updated or the package is incorrect.

GTK3 has indeed been pushed back to version 45 (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1186003) for reasons related to the built-in updater. So this is hopefully the last time going back and forth on this.

From a version, firefox-beta seems changed to use gtk2. Maybe beta 8.
firefox-beta-bin 43.0 is using gtk2, not gtk3, while firefox 43.0 in extra repo is using gtk3.

it gives me an error saying that the md5sum is not right.
i looked up the pkgbuild and it is not right.
you have to write 'SKIP' in the md5sums array.
correct me if i'm wrong.

It does, this is required to run any plugins, not only flash. The plugin process probably depend on it.
This is why it was kept in firefox-developer and firefox-nightly.
