These are binaries from upstream built in a different way, with different dependencies. For example, it is statically linked and has a hard dependency on pulseaudio for sound support.

The AUR guidelines on "duplicates" do not apply to packages like this. See previous discussion:

Curious about the icon situation, see line 47 in the PKGBUILD

  # Icons
  #for i in 16x16 32x32 48x48 64x64 128x128; do
  #  install -d "$pkgdir"/usr/share/icons/hicolor/$i/apps/
  #  ln -s /opt/$pkgname/browser/chrome/icons/default/default${i/x*}.png \
  #        "$pkgdir"/usr/share/icons/hicolor/$i/apps/$_pkgname.png
  #done

I see this was commented out during the upgrade to FF81 (commit e0b492a0); as vxxii reported, this causes icons not to show.

Out of curiosity: icons aren't showing, I assume that's due to The Icons section being commented out. If that's so, why? Thanks

@Alad, for the recent 114.0.1 version, I have a local verified patch for it.

@bittin works, thanks!

@EmilC: the checksum should be the correct one now sorry for sloppy packing on my part

Hi. Can you update source array to use only variables?

-source=("https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/106.0.4/linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-$pkgver.tar.bz2"
+source=("https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/${pkgver}/linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-${pkgver}.tar.bz2"

Thank you
