[Security Update] 2018-10-23 - Firefox 63

Firefox 63.0 has been pushed to the following branches:

  • stable
  • x32-stable
  • x32-testing

As per normal, these have had minimal testing.

testing and unstable already have 63.0-1.

i686 packages will arrive “soon”. Maybe tomorrow?

x32-unstable is currently otherwise occupied, switch back to x32-testing for now (the repos databases are currently the same anyway).

not wanting to rush anyone, but i hope firefox-kde-opensuse will follow sooner this time? ^^

I’ll look into it.

You lot don’t ask for much do you?

Isn’t firefox with the dark theme it comes with pretty much KDE like?

the kde-opensuse-patchset are more tweaks etc to fit better with KDE. The file-selector dialogue is an example :slight_smile:
It’s not a necessity, but very nice to have ^^

The OpenSUSE patches add some extra Qt5-specific stuff.

As it is, my Firefox build priorities are:

  1. Firefox x86_64 stable
  2. Firefox x86_64 testing
  3. Firefox x86_64 unstable
  4. Firefox i686 stable
  5. Firefox i686 testing/unstable
  6. Anything else

probably a reasonable order!
my remark was more catered to the last update where kde-opensuse had been “forgotten” :slight_smile:

What’s the security update patching?

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2018-26/

interesting I’d be down to try it but pacman says I’d have to replace it with Firefox and I don’t really want to do that. Hmmm I know I’ll test it in a VM of have of Manjaro :smile:

I was hoping you’d push it to stable tonight :slight_smile: Thanks so much @jonathon !!

i686 packages built and pushed.

i think they are interchangeable, so none of your settings/profile should get lost when switching between the two…at least i think so ^^

This time ff-kde-opensuse came really quick so I can’t complain. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Aside minor hiccup that my FF profile borked out after this update and had to refresh it, rest is great.

I made the change on my main machine non-vm but I don’t see any difference. Even the firefox about says I’m still running firefox for arch linux

If you open the file selector (crtl+o), does it say “KMozillaHelper”?

yes :slight_smile: I guess I’m just surprised because I thought the kde version of firefox would’ve made the settings menus dark theme.

Update I switched back to regular firefox because KDE version has a bug I just discovered. I had to send an email via the web interface because I’m currently having an issue with Kmail that I need to see if I can fix. Anyway the bug in ff kde is that when you go to attach a file in Gmail web it doesn’t actually attach.
