This package uses unofficial binaries from icecatbrowser.org. Arch Linux is sufficiently different from Fedora/Red Hat that rpm binaries may not work.

  • Before flagging out-of-date, check that new binaries are available for download.

  • Avoid flagging and commenting at the same time for the same issue.

    • Flag for common issues with standard solutions, like updating depends.
    • Comment for issues requiring explanation or debugging.
      • Use a pastebin for blocks of text more than a few lines.

You need to replace fc38 with fc37 in PKBUILD in order to work:
