pkgver function no longer works.

I found I could use iceweasel instead of any of the firefox variants listed. I had to change the depends line and also add a symbolic link firefox->iceweasel in /usr/bin

haawda: Yes sorry I meant Mozilla has since ceased all development of Xulrunner, not Firefox.

escondida: Thank you very much, after removing the download-status-widget, Conkeror's interface works with my rc again when running Conkeror via Firefox.

NLisa, does the UI work when you run conkeror without an rc (conkeror -q)? If so, make sure you don't have the download-status-widget enabled; some firefox change deprecated something it depended on. If that doesn't work, please post your configuration to a sane paste site, such as <> or <>.

Sadly, xulrunner is dead for good, so Firefox is the only way forward.

You mean Mozilla ceased all development of xulrunner. Firefox is actively developed.

What advice do you need? I also had problems with firefox and reverted back to xulrunner. Working much better.

I believe conkeror has moved from Xulrunner to Firefox dependency.

I believe this change is due to the fact that Mozilla has ceased all development of Firefox.

Conkeror loads, but all controls are broken, when started using Firefox

In the interim, I have reverted back to Xulrunner by replacing 'firefox' dependency with 'xulrunner' in the PKGBUILD file, and in /usr/bin/conkeror, I have made the following changes to revert back to using Xulrunner:

exec xulrunner "/usr/share/conkeror/application.ini" "$@"

Previously, with the new Firefox dependency:

XUL_APP_FILE="/usr/share/conkeror/application.ini" exec firefox "$@"

Please advise.

Sincere regards,

Update to reflect new versioning.

Now depends on firefox, because mozilla quit developing xulrunner.

Updated PKGBUILD for Makefile patch.

It's a moot point, because xul < 36 isn't available in Arch. Keep your system up-to-date (-:

It looks like the package actually requires xulrunner version >= 33.0-2. Can someone confirm this?
