Kinda weird problem wondering if anyone else is getting this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "build/pgo/", line 80, in <module>
  File "/home/upgrade/firefox-esr/src/firefox-78.7.1/testing/mozbase/mozhttpd/mozhttpd/", line 269, in start
    self.httpd = EasyServer((, self.port), self.handler_class)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 420, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 108, in server_bind
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 434, in server_bind
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 228, in meth
    return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args)
socket.error: [Errno 98] Address already in use

I cannot figure out what it is trying to bind to that may already be in use because there is nothing running. Looking at the source I see the port set to "0" which according to the docs this is default. Any ideas?

The same patch for icecat is going to be needed for this PKGBUILD to please. The only diff between them being "patch -Np1 -i ../../../rust_1.48.patch" needs to be "patch -Np1 -i ../rust_1.48.patch" as you may already know.

@AndyRTR I'm building in a laptop with 16GB RAM with a W10 virtual machine running and it works for me. All patches are always welcome. I've cloned this package to my personal github, so pull requests will be accepted.

I guess somewhere around 78.3.0 the memory requirement while linking toolkit/library/build/ had a huge jump. Now my 16gb are no more sufficient and the system starts heavy swapping. Maybe we can reduce this. heftig made some suggestions to turn off pgo, lto and use bfd linker with its memory saving flags but with paying in code quality. maybe via an optional switch in the PKGBUILD.
