Instead of building this yourself, please use the repository from

Not only do you skip the very time-consuming builds, but the published package also has debug symbols at Mozilla's crash reports service, which helps tremendously with finding or filing bugs for any crashes you get.

I consider this the canonical firefox-nightly package for Arch Linux.

SigLevel = Optional
Server =$arch

Alternatively, download Firefox Nightly straight from Mozilla, extract it to a writable place (e.g. ~/.local/firefox-nightly) and let it update itself using the integrated updater.

Every time I try to install this package, with paru or by running makepkg I always get this error :

AssertionError: (b'data/config/external/icu/data', {b'-s/icudt70l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt64l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt69l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt66l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt60l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt63l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt59l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt72l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt56l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt71l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt65l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt67l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt58l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt73l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt62l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt68l.dat': None, b'-s/icudt61l.dat': None})
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading mozilla-central hg repo

I've also try to simply clone the repo manually, and I got the same error.

I was wondering if other people have enconter the same error and if not, I may have to oen an issue with mercurial, I guess.

Yes, it's built for Arch and now needs glibc 2.38.

Hey hello! And thanks for your great work so far!

Today I'm getting this error on Manjaro, is this something on my side ?

/usr/lib/firefox-nightly/firefox: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBC_2.38' not found (required by /usr/lib/firefox-nightly/firefox)

(glibc is 2.37 on my Manjaro system)

Hello, it has nothing to do with a build - today's one went smoothly - anyway, firefox always crashes when I'm trying to print - as soon as I hit Ctrl+P or I invoke a menu item. Does anyone know a possible problem or a way out?

It seems to work now.

@heftig In respond to your pinned comment: I like your repository idea, but it would be neat if you could deploy signatures there.

Adding a repository without signatures is quite a safety hazard.

heftig commented on 2023-01-03 08:24 (UTC)


Rust from rustup is using LLVM 15 but our clang is still at LLVM 14.

You currently need to use rust from our repository to build this, until Arch has upgraded to LLVM 15.

Hello, while building the code, I finished with the same error for two days already:

Can I somehow make it work?

@heftig, ah okay. Sorry I've overlooked your comment – otherwise I wouldn't have marked it as out-of-date.

heftig commented on 2022-10-20 18:23 (UTC)


Currently suffering from . Should be fine tomorrow.

The AUR package is not updated when only the pkgver changes.

RubenKelevra commented on 2022-10-20 14:15 (UTC)

@heftig is there a specific reason why the aur package isn't updated?

Anyway, I've installed the 108 version from your repo... and it freezes all the time, while the version previously worked fine.
