@tilt @all, you can now use "export FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER=true" on the command line to activate the switch for the Firefox-ESR v68.x update channel. Let me know if you experience any issues with this switch.

@StarPicard I can update to firefox 60.0 as well. Do you guys want me to do that?

Edit: I've added a flag (FIREFOX_ESR_BIN_PREFER_OLDER) for people who prefer the firefox 58 packages

Hello, I've flagged this package and it seems if you have set it back. Is your policy to support it until end of life?

Dependencies are wrong. This is the prebuilt package. Most of the system libs aren't required but bundeled from the tarball. Please compare to the icecat-bin package and fix it!

I changed the download path in the PKGBUILD. Should now work again. If you still encounter any problems let me know.

The download path at no longer resolves. The link below is currently the official link provided by Mozilla, and works just fine in the PKGBUILD for me:

@dimosd I will clean up in the next update. Thanks for your advice

The make dependencies are not needed at all, since the PKGBUILD simply copies the files... perhaps a left over from the original PKGBUILD?

ubone commented on 2017-06-16 09:27

maybe dependencies should be checked again

@izilly what about upgrades? This package is flagged outdated again! Please let me take over maintenance! I will be much faster
