If somebody has no idea what this package does - it grabs language packs in xpi form from mozilla ftp, matching to uncommented entries from /etc/locale.gen

Available LANG-packs on the server (as of today, this is automagically found out on the server): ar ast cs de en-GB eo es-AR es-CL es-ES es-MX fa fr fy-NL gl he hu id it ja-JP-mac ja kk ko lt lv nb-NO nl nn-NO oc pl pt-BR pt-PT ru sk sl sv-SE th tr uk vi zh-CN zh-TW ar ast cs de en-GB eo es-AR es-CL es-ES es-MX fa fr fy-NL gl he hu id it ja-JP-mac ja kk ko lt lv nb-NO nl nn-NO oc pl pt-BR pt-PT ru sk sl sv-SE th tr uk vi zh-CN zh-TW

Before installing you should set extensions.autoDisableScopes to 11 (just like the stable has by default - but nightly doesn't). Sadly i cannot add this as a vendor pref without a lockPref due to unknown bug ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Lock_Prefs , http://mike.kaply.com/2012/02/09/integrating-add-ons-into-firefox/ , https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=779437 )

@eschwartz: Simple sed command is far from being "database parser" and it's much more efficient than running pacman for such trivial information

eschwartz commented on 2018-09-16 15:12

Why did you write a custom libalpm database parser instead of using:

pacman -Q firefox-nightly| cut -d' ' -f2

Package still works fine, it will now even bump itself provided that installed firefox-nightly is newer than this PKGBUILD.

Automatic language selection via intl.locale.matchOS is broken since 59.x as reported by some ubuntu user: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/1755918 and intl.locale.requested has to be used instead (with value of chosen locale like ru)

It seems not working.

The only way i have managed to set extensions.autoDisableScopes to 11 from global configfile was via lockPref

swiftgeek commented on 2013-08-31 03:46

For now one has to enable it manually in about:addons -> languages
OR
Set in about:config extensions.autoDisableScopes to 11 BEFORE installing this package

swiftgeek commented on 2013-08-31 03:39

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=779437 checked and still doesn't work!

After setting extensions.autoDisableScopes to 11 issue 1. is fixed!
But for nightly i can't set extensions.autoDisableScopes to anything from pref, only user_pref
