Hi @tilt, thanks for the comment. I've fixed the providers issue. Completelly overlooked this one when updating.

In terms of your request about disabling automatic updates: I will consider to add a switch to enable/disable automatic updates.

Hi @runaz, since firefox 68 there's no way to disable automatic updates checks, unless using a policies.json located in installation folder: would you consider to add this file into the aur package? Update checks are fairly bothering: a popup appears in the upper right of the window, and even if you dismiss it, it reappears after few minutes (or when you restart, can't remember).

If you need more details about policies.json: https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#disableappupdate

Moreover, the PKGBUILD should report provides=('firefox=68') am I right?

Thanks in advance, bye bye!

@basil, it is no problem on your side. I forgot to update the sha512 sums of the *.desktop files. The upgrade should work now!

I'm trying to update this package, but the validity check fails:

==> Validating source files with sha512sums...
    firefox-60.8.0esr.tar.bz2 ... Passed
    firefox-esr.desktop ... FAILED
    firefox-esr-safe.desktop ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

Is this a problem on my side?

@hentaku, I have updated the .desktop files. Let me know if it now works for you.

runaz commented on 2019-07-29 17:43

Please do not flag this package out of date if it is clearly up to date @TheGoliath

Hello, I'm using this package on KDE Plasma, however Firefox ESR doesn't show in the "default applications" menu, after digging for a bit, I think adding "WebBrowser" at the line for Categories of the .desktop files fixes it, please consider add this in future update, thanks

Unfortunately I can't reproduce it on my machine. It is either a configuration problem of your system or a bug in Firefox. Either way you could try reporting it to Mozilla.

Hey, error was gone for some time... Now I'm recognizing it again. Should I report it to Mozilla?

Starting in safe mode is working fine and every command is right: for normal mode 'firefox-esr %u' and for safe mode 'firefox-esr -safe-mode %u'. The only thing is that the "application menu" in the Gnome Top Bar and the hover label in the list of the running applications says "Firefox ESR - SafeMode" even if it's normal mode...
