I'll admit I'm lost here. You could try running "export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig" before running makepkg again. You could also try building something else that requires gtk3 (and by extension glib2) to see if it's somehow a Firefox-specific issue - alsa-tools or four-in-a-row are two relatively small such packages from the official repositories.

@argymeg

- Oh yes, execute "echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH" returns empty.

- Confirm existing of "gtk+-3.0.pc", "gtk+-unix-print-3.0.pc", "glib-2.0.pc" and "gobject-2.0.pc" in /usr/lib/pkgconfig.

Could you check your PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable (run "echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH")? It should probably be empty. Also, check if the files "gtk+-3.0.pc", "gtk+-unix-print-3.0.pc", "glib-2.0.pc" and "gobject-2.0.pc" exist in /usr/lib/pkgconfig.

@Det
I got them but for sure I'd re-installed both of them also with base-devel. Problem remains.

Seems like you don't have them glib2 (2.46.2-2) and/or gtk3 (3.18.7-1)?

Makepkg failed, could someone help?

It's just something I carried over from the official Firefox PKGBUILD - apparently there are some niche use cases where "firefox-bin" is called instead of "firefox", so I kept it in the interest of being able to simply replace "firefox" with "firefox-beta" to switch over to this package in any context. It's probably unlikely to actually get used but I can't see the harm in it, either.

You sure you want the -beta-bin symlinks there also?

Upstream adoption of GTK3 has once again been pushed back to version 45 for reasons related to the built-in Mozilla updater and thus irrelevant here. Since the port is otherwise finished and in keeping with the official repo version, I'll be sticking with GTK3 here.

Thanks for the heads-up. Also in order to switch to ffmpeg I had to explicitly disable gstreamer, which isn't done in the Mozilla builds. Playback seems to work fine for me so far but drop me a line if anyone has an issue with this.
