@meatatt I have Manjaro Linux Stable and all is fine. As @philmanjaro said it's issue with freetype2 v2.8.1. So the only solution for now is downgrading freetype2 to v.2.8 or just install waterfox-kde-bin.

There is definitely some kind of memory leak in compiling. It eats up all 16G of ram space and got it self killed. Compiling with lastest version of everything and the default arch kernel.

@meatatt Ok, you're right. Changed source to git, added patch for jack and other improvements :)

@hawkeye116477 You may be mistaken. I choose to clone also because of the slow download speed. The bare repo is huge and it takes much more time to clone, but ONLY AT THE FIRST TIME. Unlike tarballs which need a full download every update, old repos can be updated to a new commit instantly & automatically. So just keep the cloned repo elsewhere and drop a symbol link to it in the build dir before running makepkg. Additionally, repos have builtin checksum support, which is safer than a tarball with 'SKIP'.

@meatatt Ok, thanks, fixed, but left as tarball for now, because for me it takes much time to clone. I don't know why it downloads at 250k. shows 20 Mbps, so should be 2m. Same is also with tarball, but it takes less space, so it faster downloads. I only have that slow download speed on git.

Just switched from waterfox-git.
Nice work, but it seems that you removed the 'not needed icons' without the removal of their hashes. And ccache is a make dependency. Also, I prefer vcs sources to tarballs because it's much faster to update a bare repo to new commits than download a full archive everytime.
Here is the PKGBUILD:
I bumped the pkgrel to 2, and made some personal modifications such as enabling pulse audio, jack & txt2speech. Diff and see :)
