If you face this:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... yyyymmdd-firefox-xx.0a1.en-US.linux-${CARCH}.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key BBBEBDBB24C6F355)

Please read this.

Short answer:

gpg --recv-key 0x61B7B526D98F0353

If you face this:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... yyyymmdd-firefox-xx.0a1.en-US.linux-${CARCH}.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (bad signature from public key BBBEBDBB24C6F355)

Then just retry later (~1h), this is a CDN caching issue.

Disabling auto update via vendor.js is not working anymore:

adding a policies.json with the following content:

{ "policies": { "DisableAppUpdate": true } }

and then installing it via

install -Dm644 "${srcdir}"/policies.json -t "${pkgdir}"/${OPT_PATH}/distribution

should solve this.

This package doesn't seem to get updated daily, only when major version is changed (e.g. 61 -> 62). I believe this is due to package signature isn't updated on daily basis.

I'm getting a PGP signature verification failure when trying to update to 63. I've tried the solutions suggested in the pinned comment.

Package title is fixed when I upload a new PKGBUILD, but indeed the PKGBUILD actually download the latest nightly (or the one before in some cases because of several caching levels).

Mattwmaster58 commented on 2018-05-24 16:57

Looking at the PKGBUILD it looks like the latest sources are installed, but the package title states that it's version 62.0a1.20180509-1 that is being installed, but that's incorrect... right?

ArchangeGabriel commented on 2018-03-06 12:57

Yes indeed, but makepkg will output the signing subkey ID (which is subject to change) while the other one is the master key, that is supposed to stay the same, so for my pinned post I’ve figured that printing this one would be better.

You can just copy paste the "unknown public key BBBEBDBB24C6F355" tho right? I mean that's what I did and it was the same.

Sorry my bad. And I prefer to do as the repo package, link to real binary rather than to the simlink.

Desktop file needs to be updated. There's no /opt/firefox-nightly/firefox-nightly but /opt/firefox-nightly/firefox. Or even better, use /usr/bin/firefox-nightly.
