delete mozilla-common from your pkgbuild and test if it still works seems to work fine here

It's not removed from AUR, it was dropped from official repositories. There's an issue with moving packages to AUR, after they were removed from the official repositories. I don't have a link at hand. However, it's mentioned somewhere in the AUR general mailing list archive this year. The package mozilla-common 1.4-6 seems still to be ok and can be installed from the Arch Linux Archive, e.g. by using the downgrade script available by the AUR.

This package uses mozilla-common, as a dependency, which seems to be gone from AUR!

@shket this package uses binary version compiled by upstream. But, unfortunately, GNU seems not interested doing it anymore. I don't know if there is some "GNU's official distro" where we can pull the binary, just for people that can't build IceCat themselfs.

@figue the "unstable" version (78.7.0) is more popular in AUR. So why are you still maintaining previous version, even if the newest is "unstable"?

figue commented on 2020-06-12 10:32

Latest stable release still is 60.7.0. Please, don't flag as out-of-date:;O=D

Hi @Selfes, the other package I maintain was updated with the sources provided by Antonio Trande that maintain official Fedora package. It's not really official and is not a prerelease.

For this package, usually I wait until official binary is out, but you are free to try prereleases or betas if they are available, and then report back.

@figue hello, I noticed that icecat is updated to 68.2. Since the icecat package in the AUR is already updated, but according to the mailing list that version is (probably) a preview (, I would like to know if this this package is getting updated to the preview version or if you will wait until the final version is published.

@aluizioneto you have to trust in Ruben's gpg key. Just execute this in a shell:

gpg --recv-keys D7BEFC2F89D03EFC

I'm having the issue bellow:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... icecat-60.7.0.en-US.gnulinux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key D7BEFC2F89D03EFC) ==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

Read Jezza's comment but didn't quite understand what is going on. Can someone help me to clear this? GPG is not able to verify the signatures and Jezza is suggesting changing them on the PKGBUILD, right? Is that a safe procedure? What would be a reliable source for the correct keys?
