No need to flag this package out of date just because firefox-developer-edition got an update:

This package here, firefox-developer-edition-firefox-symlink-latest, updates the $pkgver automatically on each build according to the installed firefox-developer-edition via the pkgver()-function.

Thanks for this package @dreieck, it’s super useful!

Symlinking /usr/lib/firefox would be helpful, too. That’d enable AUR packages such as firefox-video-acceleration, which adds files to /usr/lib/firefox.

~~Feel free to cherry-pick my GitHub commit 6f7dd4c if you like.~~ Update: never mind. Turns out pacman refuses to enter directories that are symlinks.
