@bittin why you flagged as out-of-date?

figue commented on 2020-11-10 22:36

@bittin Probably we'll wait until final realease is released.

Thanks @heftig. All suggestions implemented.

You should set StartupWMClass=firefoxesr in the desktop file to match the remoting name set in .mozconfig, otherwise the desktop might not be able to assign the windows to the app correctly.

You should disable the crashreporter, as it's only useful if you also submit the built symbol archive to Mozilla. Since each AUR user builds the browser themselves, this isn't happening.

For the same reason, you can remove buildsymbols and the handling of the '*crashreporter-symbols-full.zip'. This will also remove a good chunk of the build time.

To continue using old 68 branch, you can use this package https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/firefox-esr68

@GI_Jack thanks. Seems good. Done.

Please change

provides=(firefox)

to

provides=(firefox=${pkgver})

This way it works with packages that version check FX

New prebuilt binaries in my own openSUSE Build Service account:

[home_ffigue_Arch]
Server = http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ffigue/Arch/$arch

To verify signature, you can do like this:

$ wget -O- http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ffigue/Arch/x86_64/home_ffigue_Arch.key | sudo gpg --homedir /etc/pacman.d/gnupg --import -
$ sudo pacman-key --lsign-key F5AAC5A5424ED5CA
