It seems to be a bug appearing only in nightly and beta versions of Firefox and only when using the hardly used IceWM, so that's why I'm almost the only one experiencing this bug:

Anyone else having the annoying behaviour of the context menu opening with the back item immediately under the cursor? See for what I mean. The drawback is that a simple right-click will trigger a 'back' event.

I already looked at but that version of Firefox apparently uses other styles than the new Firefox (I know FF 57 is a completely new version). I also tried to locate context menu styles in the sources, but applying something like

#context-navigation {
margin-top: 10px !important;
margin-left: 10px !important;

in Stylus doesn't change anything. For the record, I'm using the default Adwaita GTK3 theme.

That was fast. Thanks!

Don't know if this was already considered, but may I suggest adding 'hunspell: spell checking' and 'hyphen: hyphenation' to optdepends and than linking /usr/share/hunspell and /usr/share/hyphen to /opt/firefox-beta/dictionaries and /opt/firefox-beta/hyphenation (and removing the bundled dirs first, of course)?

This enables additional dictionaries for those of us that use several languages under a single firefox install while also working properly for everybody else.

Not really, since it's not official Arch.

I made a source for armv7h. Could you add it?

Unfortunately the window class fix in ea7a85b8afd seems to break xdg-open, which doesn't appear to be quote aware. If you run, for example:

xdg-open somefile.html

strace output shows:

execve("/opt/firefox-beta/firefox", ["/opt/firefox-beta/firefox", "--class", "\"Firefox", "Beta\"", "somefile.html"], 0x14ddff0 /* 52 vars */) = 0

so Firefox tries to open a file called 'Beta"' in addition to the requested file.

I tried a few other escaping methods but couldn't find one that xdg-open recognised. Switching to rccavalcanti's second suggestion of using Exec=/usr/bin/firefox-beta %u works correctly, though.

(Thanks for all your work packaging this!)
