@ArchangeGabriel, the startup-notification seems to be optional. Since I didn't have that installed and everything works fine.

@Aetf: I’ve updated the PKGBUILD.

Note that you need additional dependency on startup-notification for that. Maybe could be optional though. We made this change to recently.

Could the relevant StartupWMClass lines be added to the desktop file so we can get hires window icon in task manager?

I saw the comments from 2015 saying something not working. But for now, for me it works perfectly. I basically added StartupWMClass=FirefoxNightly and added --class FirefoxNightly to Exec line. And make sure to update the database by running kbuildsycoca5 (or whatever equivalent on other DE)

Here's the desktop file that works for me:

$ gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// 1C69C4E55E9905DB

With this URL ( signature gets successfully verified. 3 URLs that looks pretty the same content have. I already lost in Mozilla's URLs. :-)

@acidicX: Please read the full ticket, the issue is not a checksum URL one, it’s a CDN one. The .sig file end up being the same on all the CDN targets, but the file isn’t. There is no key management issue, only a CDN one. The checksum thing it is referring to is a symptom of this just as is the bad signature one.
