Disowned since I don't use it anymore.

Light is still lighter than the new supposedly lighter Firefox, but since a few weeks it shows some problem with new certificates, so at least on my system (i686) it does not recognise Gmail certificate as trusted. Is there a way to fix that? Is the upstream project died? After version 49rc in october 2016 it shows no updates. At least on Sourceforge.

I think you can remove the rpmextract command and its related dependency from the PKGBUILD. The program bsdtar, installed as part of the base system and called by makepkg, will handle the rpm source file perfectly well.

Updated. Thanks for the tip!

if-then construct for the md5sums can be replaced with md5sums_x86_64=() and md5sums_i686=() lines - further info can be found on man PKBUILD page

If you don't want to provide the rc version, please disregard flagging as out-of-date.

I can't find any relevant discussions online, but I'd be surprised since mainline Firefox doesn't ship with GTK+3 until version 43 [1].

Is there a way to make lightfirefox use GTK+2?

Download URL is now mirror-independent.
