I will continue to maintain this package with weekly updates because, currently, firefox-kde-opensuse requires users to add a private repo, and firefox-kde-opensuse-bin is built by a single person. Although we expect the best intentions of every developer, I consider it too risky to trust any one person or entity with the binary integrity of packages as sensitive as firefox or gcc. The binaries here are built by opensuse automation, and are therefore subject to the trust in the opensuse distribution itself.

Disowning this package now. Please switch to firefox-kde-opensuse-bin instead.

Features missing with this package:

  • "Global Menu" integration does not work
  • Wayland is almost completely broken (force Xwayland via env GDK_BACKEND=x11 firefox)
  • Extension packages don't work (e.g. firefox-ublock-origin)

So the only thing this package might offer in contrast to firefox-kde-opensuse and firefox-kde-opensuse-bin is, sometimes, a more up-to-date build. Often the packaging at OBS fails, which will then delay updates to this package.

This package should be a pretty safe drop-in replacement for the other two packages mentioned above, so in case you want a newer build you can switch to this package and switch back later.

IMHO this package is inferior to the other two.

There currently is no new release for 77 right now as their packaging is broken rn. See sidebar (right):

Hi, me again, the URL has changed to - version 835.5 instead of 835.4.

Scrumplex, cheers, thanks for maintaining this

ciiron: should be fixed now.

The problem was and still is: There is a new revision or a rebuild almost every day, which currently requires manually updating the version number. Sadly I couldn't find an easy way to automate this by now.

Hi, I'm getting a 404 when trying to download the RPM from here in the PKGBUILD

@zyldragoon: Looks like there is a DBus Error when starting firefox. I don't know how to fix this, as I am not building the binaries
