@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.

Please do not flag this package out of date if it is clearly up to date @TheGoliath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

I just tried starting Firefox in SafeMode and that worked for me. But I'm using Mate as window manager. Could you check what start command is used in your Gnome shell? Here it is 'firefox-esr -safe-mode %u'

Hey, I just noticed a strange behavior on Firefox. In my Gnome shell is written Firefox ESR - SafeMode and that, although Firefox is obviously not in SafeMode, since all Addons are enabled.

I just completely reinstalled Firefox and started it with a clean profile and observed the same behavior.

When I start Firefox in SafeMode, it actually starts in SafeMode.

Can any of you confirm this behavior?
