@RubenKelevra It was an error when I uploaded v1.0.2 zip it was the v1.0.1 one

@noraj so I fetched the XPI and extracted it.

Line 6 of the version 1.0.2 xpi from the mozilla server lists the version as 1.0.1.

And line 17 reads as the following:

      "search_url": "{searchTerms}"

I have also exactly one xpi installed with this name on the system and it got the right b2sum:

$ find / -name "" 2>/dev/null
$ b2sum /usr/lib/firefox/browser/extensions/

@noraj thanks for the fast comment. Issue is: I've installed the whole system AFTER 1.0.4 was released. So it's kind of weird that I got 1.0.1 installed. :/

@RubenKelevra it has already been fixed in v1.0.4 ( and is shipped in _alaur_ver=1.0.2. It's an issue with Firefox that despite updating the package it doesn't update the FF addons. FF addons fork in a weird way. You can check in your extensions you must have the AUR extension in v1.0.1 and not v1.0.2.

RubenKelevra commented on 2022-04-18 12:32 (UTC)

The search for the AUR is broken. There's a ".php" in the constructed URL which doesn't seem to be used anymore. :)

@roadtang Just tested again and it worked. Maybe a corruption while downloading. Try again.

hi there, LICENSE file doesn't pass validity check in my arch.

archlinux_manual_pages_search-1.0.2-fx.xpi ... Passed

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Firefox 85 hangs on startup with this extension enabled, not sure why

I found that too but it's weird because nothing chanegd from the plugin API:

new package available: It replaces this one.

@json I created the Web Extensions, I just need to wait for the xpi to be approved by Mozilla and I'll be able to submit the new PKGBUILD.

PS: new extensions can't be installed if not signed (.xpi) by Mozilla else (with .zip) the install doesn't survive the browser reboot.

json commented on 2020-10-10 20:34 (UTC) might serve as a good starting point. I opened a feature request for supporting the other sites in that web-extension. But feel free to tackle the issue yourself :)

@json Thanks for the info, that feature downgrade sucks. It's much more work to create an extension for any search page. I'll write a web-extension to replace the opensearch XML one.

json commented on 2020-10-10 11:06 (UTC)

If is any indication, the feature to define and ship search engines via XML has been removed.

Doesn't appear to support the standard firefox-developer-edition package but it supports firefox-developer-edition-firefox-symlink-latest. As for if it works I have got no idea. EDIT: nevermind, i guess whoever manages the package group should update that

noraj commented on 2020-08-23 13:37 (UTC)

I confirm it's not showing up on Firefox 79.0

holyArch commented on 2020-07-30 16:36 (UTC)

They don't show up in Firefox 79.

homocomputeris commented on 2020-07-22 11:05 (UTC)

They don't appear in 78.0.2.

pdc commented on 2020-07-01 20:48 (UTC)

They're back in version 78.0.1-1.

pdc commented on 2020-07-01 17:54 (UTC)

The searches don't appear in Firefox 78.
