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.

if anyone notices any "strange" behavior, bear in mind that upstream firefox switched from gcc to clang like a week ago. (the firefox in archlinux's repo already used clang, however as this is taken from mozilla's site it was using gcc). Just a PSA.

Like most desktop files, the desktop file should just call firefox-nightly and not specify the full path to allow for alternate scripts.

No, they are disabled on purpose. If you want to update, just build the package again and install it, that is the way it works.

I get "Updates disabled by your system administrator". Please enable auto update.

@Lindhe Exactly what @di72nn said.

@Lindhe I may be wrong, but it seems that pacaur's --devel option is what you're looking for.

Lindhe commented on 2018-08-16 17:22

I just realized that this package automatically pulls the latest version from Mozilla, even if the version number of the packet is not changed. Would it be possible to have some automated build process to update that, because right now my nightly will not be found by pacaur as a program that can be updated...

@SamWhited Can you confirm this is happening even with the policies.json in place?

ArchangeGabriel commented on 2018-08-15 17:47

There is a way to fix this, I just need to check whether it would be acceptable with fellow TUs.

ratcheer commented on 2018-08-07 12:45

I get the "FAILED (bad signature from public key" almost every time I try to make this package, no matter how long I wait. Is there a more reliable way to do this?
