Why those patches can't get into the main Firefox package? It would benefit much more people...

I really like the new media support matrix

@solarisfire The change you were referring to was made in the upstream firefox package, this AUR package tries to remain as close as possible to it.

I don't see how this can be due to an upstream change...

The issue is during the compile phase, and isn't for issues within the AUR.

Monitoring the compilation ld.lld is the process that starts using excessive amounts of RAM, and that's affected by lto.

Are you actually able to build this with <=32GB of RAM?

@solarisfire Was an upstream change in the firefox package, please report at instead.

Just tried clean building with 116 and it still eats up all available RAM on my system and crashing it...

I don't think this change was a good idea:

-ac_add_options --enable-lto=cross
+ac_add_options --enable-lto=cross,full

The latest PKGBUILD (115.0.3-1) won't build for me... It just eats all of my 32GB of RAM and then my PC crashes...

@gilvbp August 1 it will be released :)

Feel free to create a firefox-beta-vaapi package or similar.
