Attention: This is last version of WF based on 68. There is newer waterfox-g3-bin available based on Gecko 78, but currently it doesn't have some of the features known from „Current" like for example tab bar position changing.

If you want to stay on this version, we recommend disabling the annoying update notification in WF:

  • Go to about:config
  • Find app.update.doorhanger and set it to false

There have been reports that this isn't enough. If you still see the update notification, please try @tilt's addition:

  • Find app.update.checkInstallTime and set it to false

PLEASE DON'T FLAG THIS PACKAGE AS OUT OF DATE (just install waterfox-g3-bin if that is the version you desire)

If someone needs language package, then he/she can install it from my repository .

If someone wants to take advantage of LTO+PGO (faster browser), then he/she/can install waterfox-current-kpe (doesn't depend on KDE libs) from my repository.

For some reason, waterfox-current-bin started showing "Gah. Your tab just crashed." on every page I open. I suspect some recent Arch package update. Multiple PCs with Arch affected likewise. Have found a workaround, to disable the "browser.tabs.remote.autostart" - https://windowsreport.com/gah-your-tab-just-crashed/

Hi @tilt, thanks for your comment. I've added it to the sticky comment. :)

Hi @simokron, app.update.doorhanger to false wasn't enough to me: the notification after few seconds WF has been opened was gone, but another one popped up during a fullscreen video streaming (different layout but same kind of message), several minutes later.

I solved modifying this config too: app.update.checkInstallTime to false

Hope this can help, bye bye! T.

Hi,

This waterfox install just started spamming 3 of my Linux boxes with an update notification:

Waterfox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy bla bla...

Would someone kindly tell me how to turn it off and pin the answer for others?

Thanks :)

vcekron commented on 2020-09-08 08:47

@RonnyD: that looks rather strange. Do you use an AUR helper?

Try building a fresh copy somewhere else in that case:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/waterfox-current-bin.git

cd waterfox-current-bin

makepkg -si

I just did the above sequence and it worked fine.

Update 2020.02 is on hold until the shared library libc++.so.1 is (hopefully) statically linked - see the relevant GitHub issue.

For those who want the update right away, the patch for the PKGBUILD is available here. Make sure to install the libc++ package.
