Don't have spare time to maintain it. Orphaning it.

Adopted PKGBUILD. Rebased it on Firefox developer's one in order to clean it up a little :)

There's a 404 error with this file

To build version 62_0b12 you need clang 6.0.1-2 (llvm and llvw-libs, too). Otherwise the build fails with following error:

I'm guessing the patch is about MLS, so I can just go without it on my desktop.

It worked to build FIREFOX_62_0b8_RELEASE with clang 6.0.1-1. I also replace all -02 flags in makepkg.conf, PKGBUILD and mozconfig with -01, but I don't know if it was relevant. UPDATE: I reverted to -02 and firefox-beta built sucessfully with clang. I also commented ac_add_options as I mentioned on 2018-07-13. One issue:

 0:17.44 make[1]: Leaving directory '/tmp/makepkg/firefox-beta/src/mozilla-unified-FIREFOX_62_0b8_RELEASE/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/browser/installer'

It helped to copy firefox-beta.desktop to /tmp/makepkg/firefox-beta/src/ and running makepkg -Re.

ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2"
ac_add_options --enable-system-hunspell
ac_add_options --enable-alsa
ac_add_options --enable-jack
mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS="-j10"

in PKGBUILD and if exesting in mozconfig allows the build to start. I will update you about the result.

FIREFOX_62_0b3 gives a build error

and if I replace the line in PKGBUILD meme=FIREFOX_62_0b6_RELEASE I get the same error

Also the link is dead.

ca9a1ec0da442ccb96e2926153795235565fb1481dcb4819618657d419fcb1bc is the sha256 for 61.0b3

pkgver is 61.3 while the source is DEVEDITION_61_0b1_RELEASE.tar.gz. Incomplete update?
