not exactly. even the nightly ffox kinda autostarts.
wtf is going on here?
Yes, we now start Firefox in the background and hide the initial window in the systemtray.

The issue with Firefox 58 was an API change upstream that broke our Firefox customizations.
This caused the hidden Firefox systraycmd window to load with an error, and not allow other Firefox instances to start until the hidden window was opened, and the error acknowledged.

We quickly fixed or modifications for the API change, and an update to our netrunner-firefox-settings package was immediately pushed out.

We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
If you haven't done so already, I'd recommend running an update:

Code:
sudo pacman -Syu

does not help. after update ffox still autostarts and must be killed manually
As I already stated:
Quote:Yes, we now start Firefox in the background and hide the initial window in the systemtray.
It shows up under the system tray as KSysTrayCmd.

The recommendation to update was to ensure the fix for the error message was applied, not the autostart.

Does it come up VISIBLY after logging in or in the background like its supposed to be?

it is invisible.

a total shit idea to autostart ffox, breaking everything.
who told you that users want broken desktops ?
What exactly breaks it then?

e.g. the "download to" folder is reset to deflt after every reboot


SUCKS BIG TIME Angry Angry Angry
That seems a bit odd, it should not do that.
I'll do some testing on my end.
Anything else you've noticed that is off in Firefox?
