@dimosd I will clean up in the next update. Thanks for your advice

The make dependencies are not needed at all, since the PKGBUILD simply copies the files... perhaps a left over from the original PKGBUILD?

ubone commented on 2017-06-16 09:27

maybe dependencies should be checked again

@izilly what about upgrades? This package is flagged outdated again! Please let me take over maintenance! I will be much faster

any idea why gnome shell displays another icon (titled Firefox ESR - Safe Mode) when i run firefox?

izilly commented on 2017-02-04 01:05

sorry for the delay; had a family emergency to deal with.

thanks @runaz, but i'll be back to more timely updates going forward.

Firefox ESR 45 is still in the "Qualify" period, so I'd rather stick to 38 by default :

updated to 45.1.0. sorry for the delay, I'm moving to a new house and have been offline for a few days.

for anyone who wants to keep using 38.x, if you set environment variable $FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER this will build the older 38.x version. anyone have any objections to that system? or would you guys rather keep the older version by default and only build 45.x if some variable is set? other thoughts?

@barton, the firefox-esr package is for people who want to compile from source; this one downloads the binary from mozilla's servers for a package that builds more quickly.

38.x has been updated upstream [1].
@izilly For those seeking 45.x and beyond, there's firefox-esr [2] so please keep this at 38.X. Thank you.
