I see, thanks. The feedback seems clear to me: main addons are not yet ported to WebExtensions, I feel a bit naked currently…

@ArchangeGabriel Dev Edition is getting merged early because Mozilla wanted more early feedback for 57. Technically the merge is supposed to be on the 19th, but I guess they released a build early.

The real issue for Mozilla is that it shouldn’t be 57.0, merging is next week…

handraka: I've updated the sha512sums for both i686 and x86_64, thanks for pointing out the change. I think upstream recently rebuilt 57.0b1 and generated new sums causing there to be a mismatch with the package.

correct sha512 key for linux-x86_64/en-US/firefox-57.0b1.tar.bz2 is:

I had to edit PKGBUILD to install

I wrote a Python script to update the italian version (firefox-developer-it), which also checks the SHA512SUMS file signature and the SHA512SUM of the sources archive. Feel free to use it if you want:

I've updated the PKGBUILD to install developer edition instead of nightly (sorry for the confusion). Until there's a good enough solution for validating pgpkeys I've resorted to using the sha512sums generated/located in the SHA512SUMS file hosted at the _srcurl of this PKGBUILD.

Note that this requires a lot of changes regarding PGP verification of sources since they only provide SHA512SUMS as signed. I’m working on a fixed PKGBUILD. Also I think that now this could benefits from auto-updating.

jnbek: Fixing now.
