Attention: It requires SSE3!

There is also waterfox-kde package with LTO+PGO and SSE2 support and langpacks on my repository on OBS.

Source files at:

Server =$arch

If you got 404, then temporarily try to replace with That should enforce direct download without mirror.

G6.0.10 is out now. This fails using yay. I was able to work around the failure by cloning the aur repo manually and got updated to G6.0.09. Again, G6.0.10 is out, so this needs updated.

The update 25 hrs ago fixed it for me.

yeah, the checksum is not updated for G6.0.9

cd ~/.cache/paru/clone/waterfox-bin
updkgsums # from pacman-contrib

makepkg -i

root@arch arch → yay -S waterfox-bin

-> Avoid running yay as root/sudo.

the sha512 of waterfox-G6.0.9.tar.bz2 seems to be wrong, so the package cannot be installed.

Please kindly remove provides=waterfox-g. It doesn't make sense to keep it after the recent name alignments throughout the AUR to name waterfox packages as waterfox, not waterfox-g.

Also AUR/waterfox doesn't provide it (and it shouldn't).

micwoj92 commented on 2023-09-26 21:06 (UTC)

pkgrel should be set to 1

aliu commented on 2023-09-02 14:08 (UTC)

@hawkeye116477 The current-bin package got instant orphaned by @MarsSeed in [PRQ#42365], that package got updated to G5, and the comment is no longer pinned. Should I file a merge request to merge both of these packages to "waterfox-bin"?

aliu commented on 2023-09-02 14:05 (UTC)

Since this has been unfrozen for no reason and sent to the G branch "supports XUL & XPCOM" is inaccurate.

@aliu Earlier Current package weren't updated, first update came after 3 years. That Current was also intended for previous versions, read vcekron's and pinned comment.
