@HerbertKnapp Hi, I trust I am not the only one who would appreciate, if the unistallation process removes this package correctly. I mean:

$ rm -rf /opt/waterfox & rm -f /usr/bin/waterfox & rm -f /usr/share/applications/waterfox.desktop & rm -f /usr/share/pixmaps/waterfox-icon.png

Currently, it is even impossible to reinstall this package due to: error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

Thanks.

Waterfox fails to run. The error I get is:

morrisar47: "I've been enjoying Waterfox but it has been crashing with the latest nvidia drivers."

The Nvidia GL shader version number increased and caused crashes. I think this bin may have been compiled before the fix from Mozilla gets introduced.

Waterfox-git _does_ have the fix from Mozilla (but it fails to compile for me)
See Firefox-ESR for a possible patch - https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/firefox-esr/

I've been enjoying Waterfox but it has been crashing with the latest nvidia drivers. nvidia 381.22-4 appears to work properly while larterversions crash on loading some sites. Some sites which crash repeatedly are yelp.com and maps.google.com. These work properly in safe mode but fail on a new install with no addidional plgins installed. Firefox does not have these problems.

(1) Flagged OOD: upstream released 55.1.0
For me that shows 'pulse' for Audio Backend in about:support, so I changed dependencies accordingly.
(2) For those who have been hit by font rendering issues, and are looking for a quick workaround untill upstream waterfox 56 is released: see https://gist.github.com/glitsj16/24ebe04ce5508843407f2c54859fe4b5

Thanks for offering this package, very much appreciated.

I wanted to let you know that Waterfox is now available in 2 new packages - waterfox-kde-bin and waterfox-kde.
They contains openSUSE's patches for better integration with KDE.

For those who care, upcoming Waterfox 52.0.2 will be built with --enable-alsa flag: https://www.reddit.com/r/waterfox/comments/625ceb/is_linux_waterfox_requiring_pulseaudio_for_sound/dfl1wkr/

Thank you.

Not a big deal, but I would like to point out that the "Icon" variable in "waterfox.desktop" is not pointing to the right icon.
