@michabuntu yes in nss PKGBUILD add line at the end of package_nss() function:

cd ../../../nss/out/Release/
install -Dt "$pkgdir/usr/lib" -m644 libcrmf.a

before the last line:

ln -sf "$pkgdir/usr/lib/"

update: downgraded nss to 3.31-1 (just to get it done)

GTK2 is now broken, missing tabs and other gaps.....

build fails with:

../../build/unix/gold/ld: error: cannot find -lcrmf

Toxygen wrote: ..add a line to add libcrmf.a (which was in previous versions of nss but not the latest)
But wehre to add? Ist there PKGBUILD for this nss? And shouldn#t it be a dependency because it does not build with the regular nss. ?

How about the GTK-issue is it gone?

also, is there a repository that provides a pre-built firefox-esr-privacy?

I have two weird issues
first, during build, i get error at the end:

/usr/bin/ldd : cannot find -lcrmf

at the link stage. after much searching, I had to manually rebuild nss 3.31 and add a line to add libcrmf.a (which was in previous versions of nss but not the latest)

the second issue, after the build, I get weird image artifacts, such as tabs not showing the right background, images not loading in webpages :

this shows a search on google images for "test", with several GUI elements missing, and images not being displayed on the webpage itself.

this is on a blank profile (and in existing profiles). I thought it was a gtk theme issue, but switching to a default theme for gtk3 doesnt resolve the issue. this has happened with any manually built package for firefox, including firefox-esr, -esr-privacy, -esr-gtk2, firefox-devel and the arch firefox pacakage itself. using a binary package (such as firefox-esr-bin and firefox from arch) does not have this behavior and pages load normally, the GUI shows elements, etc.

arch is updated, i'm using kde and breeze-dark theme on arch, but it also happens in lxde (gtk based) and openbox. other gtk apps do not have any issues with displaying GUI elements or images (geeqie for example) and like i said, the previous version of firefox-esr-* and prebuilt packages do not have the issue.

i have base-devel, the gtk3/2 packages, and i dont get any errors about missing libs (other than the first issue i mentioned).

any ideas?

Yes it'd be nice.
