I'm curious if you've actually read the PKGBUILD. Or tried using it.

It uses pkgver to update properly, using the version string from
so even though the PKGBUILD hasn't changed since you first commented, it
currently downloads:

==> Starting pkgver()...
==> Updated version: firefox-nightly 62.0a1.20180510-1

(I should note this is wrong too, but that's because curl gets a
different, older file than my browser does. Also PGP "bad signature".)

Okay? The technical solution to that seems to be to add more granularity
to the version extracted from said text file.
