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.

Trying to build nightly, but I receive on many places error: "STL code can only be used with -fno-exceptions". Is there any way out? Or should I just wait :-)

Moreover, how can I limit number of cores used for build? makepkg does not provide any option by itself. Should export MAKEFLAGS="-j 4" work? nice -19 makepkg works fine, but anyway... Just asking.

@maltejur Should be fixed; see the latest commit.

The window icon is missing for me on KDE Wayland (only noticeable when "Customize Toolbar > Titlebar" is enabled). From quick research this seems to be because of a mismatch between the window class (firefoxnightly) and the name of the desktop file (firefox-nightly.desktop). Setting MOZ_APP_REMOTINGNAME, and thus the name of the window class, to firefox-nightly in the mozconfig fixes the issue for me. Is there any reason MOZ_APP_REMOTINGNAME is currently set to firefoxnightly?

@xiota Thanks, it worked!

@DuKol Try setting LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=true.

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)
