@a7med: remove firefox-kde-opensuse and reinstall it from Thaodan repo (not archlinuxcn!!) and it should fix your problem (remember to remove archlinuxcn version from pacman cache. Otherwise it will try to install archlinuxcn version from cache[and probably fail, because mismatched signature, but it depends on pacman configuration]. Anyway run this: - - - cut here - - - rm /var/cache/pacman/pkg/firefox-kde-opensuse-64.0.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz pacman -S home-thaodan/firefox-kde-opensuse - - - cut here - - - I had identical problem(firefox coredump) that happened after latest upgrade(probably KDE Frameworks 5.54.0 or even more recent plasma-desktop/plasma-workspace v5.14.5-2). Before uograde it(problably archlinuxcn version) worked OK and 'normal' firefox from 'extra' is not affected (but it doesn't support Global Menu). archlinuxcn got identical version/rel, like you can see there: - - - cut here - - - pacman -Ss firefox-kde-opensuse home-thaodan/firefox-kde-opensuse 64.0.2-1 [zainstalowano] Standalone web browser from mozilla.org with OpenSUSE patch, integrate better with KDE archlinuxcn/firefox-kde-opensuse 64.0.2-1 [zainstalowano] Standalone web browser from mozilla.org with OpenSUSE patch, integrate better with KDE - - - cut here - - -

archlinuxcn usually don't upload PKGBUILDs to AUR and usually they got more recent versions in their binary repo that PKGBUILD in AUR, often with slightly different patchsets. I usually prefer Thaodan builds, but archlinuxcn got latest version of firefox-kde-opensuse 2 days before Thaodan.

AJSlye: I never mentioned licensing anywhere but do as you please and throw the GPL thing in here.

a7med: Which build gives you that error? I you have a larger issue (backtrace and so on) post them on gitlab.

a7med commented on 2019-01-10 18:10

it stop working after latest update it gives this error "Illegal instruction (core dumped)" on opening

AJSlye commented on 2019-01-09 13:45

Licencing is what GNU has to do with the conversation. Gcc is the GNU C compiler.

Besides, I'm sure BSD, Windows, Mac, and other OS developers couldn't give 2 cents about gcc vs clang. AFAIK, Linux is not even the majority of Mozilla's user base.

Thaodan commented on 2019-01-09 13:41

It is but its not just some. Only Suse and Arch are currenlty using clang for firefox. Mozilla can use what they want but still have to support GCC if the majority of Linux distros are using GCC. I dont know what GNU has to do with Firefox.

Thaodan commented on 2019-01-09 13:22

Some so Fedora/Red Hat are some Linux devs? i don't think thats Linux zealot BS.

Thaodan commented on 2019-01-09 09:14

Mozilla just wants to maintain one compiler. I don't think that a monoculture is a good move. I dont think its good to build one package against another compiler. Theres a reason for such policy in fedora.

Thaodan commented on 2019-01-09 05:43

@AJSlye: upstream arch just followed the others. There was no infight just a short thought switch. Any way: thanks to the workaround from fedora and the fixes from Jan Hubička I was able to restore pgo support with gcc and also to remove the gcc7 workaround. On top of that lto is also enabled. If anyone wants to read my sources on the fix:

@AJSlye: that something I dont want. Hoever those are going to be fixed: https://mastransky.wordpress.com/2019/01/08/fedora-firefox-heads-to-updates-with-pgo-lto/

Thaodan commented on 2019-01-07 09:50

@a7med: Because I maintain the pkg in my sparetime? On larger updates sometimes updates take longer (waiting for patches, fixing bugs like a broken pgo build).
