[Security Update] 2019-01-30 - Firefox 65.0

I have built and pushed Firefox 65.0 to the following branches:

  • stable
  • testing
  • unstable
  • x32-stable
  • x32-testing
  • x32-unstable

As is always the case for a short-turnaround update, this package has had only minimal testing.

Release notes: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/65.0/releasenotes/
Security advisory: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2019-01/

Other packages will arrive as they are built.

unstable already has Firefox 65 and Chromium 72.



Can you please do the same for Chrome 72…?!? :wink:

Google solves more than 50 security issues in Chrome 72

Soon. There’s Thunderbird to build too.


Is there a way to receive the rolling release updates as in Arch?

Use Arch?

unstable is synced to Arch stable, every other branch has packages moved batch-by-batch through the various testing phases:

That means various packages have to be rebuilt against the libraries in stable if they need updating faster.


Well, I like the kernel and driver handling of Manajaro, but would like to have the up to date packages

OK, so the obvious solution for your particular requirements (i.e. to always have the most recent version of every package) is to use the unstable branch.

Although - if you want the absolute most recent then you need to switch to Arch testing+staging. But good luck with that.



7 posts were split to a new topic: Why no update?

A post was merged into an existing topic: Why no update?

Excellent :wink:

For firefox-kde users: currently it’s not possible to build with the KDE patchset because they haven’t been updated for FF 65 yet.

EDIT: it’s just the mozilla-nongnome patch that needs to be adapted. I’ll try without it (or fix the patch…)

EDIT 2: errr sorry… no it’s much more than just that single patch :frowning:


Building kde-opensuse now, will post later today.
I’ve been down with the flu and didn’t notice Arch had updated.
Even though I’m still sick, this package I usually build on my home PC so a trip into the office isn’t needed. :wink:


Please report back if you get it working.
Thanks :slight_smile:

Everything is fine, thanx. :slightly_smiling_face:

Update: I’m reworking that patch now.
But then, my patching skills are not so great.


Update, nope it’s more than just that one patch:

Let me see what I can do with the other patches later.
If not, I’ll just have to wait on Wolfgang to fix them.


Use Arch?

Lol’ed at your response.
Well played good sir.

Updated, no issues to report. Manjaro Deepin edition. Thank you devs!

It looks like in the new version they combined the privacy cookie settings. I had mine previously set to block “all 3rd party cookies” but the new version only has apparently 1 setting and this was set on “3rd party trackers”…but you can set this option to “all 3rd party cookies.” Definitely worth checking out your settings.
