Motivation for this change

Requested at MrAlex94/Waterfox#297

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option build-use-sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nox --run "nox-review wip" N/A
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

This is my first Nix package, so if I'm missing something or doing something wrong, please point me at it :) Thanks!

UPD: please don't merge yet! Things currently broken:

  • Open / save dialogs crash the app, stating “No GSettings schemas are installed on the system” in stderr
  • The desktop entry isn't copied to profile

Why patchelf and not from source? This would be hard(er) to maintain.

@yegortimoshenko I definitely consider building from source too, thanks! I'm not yet familiar with the mozbuild process but it doesn't seem too hard. My problem right now is that I only have a laptop and it might not be powerful enough to build it adequate time (I'll give it a try today though!)

FWIW, I've taken a first pass at writing a package for building it from source, based on the existing firefox packages and Arch's waterfox PKGBUILD. I've been happily using it for the last week or so, but it needs some cleaning up I think, which I'm not sure I'll be able to get around to soon.

Likely it would be possible to have both firefox and waterfox packages based on a common expression, although probably it isn't worthwhile...

I'm not actively using NixOS anymore, sorry :( @Shados feel free to take over if you're up to it!

I have some expressions for building both waterfox 56 and the 68 alpha from source here. They could be cleaner, especially if firefox-common were exposed in pkgs in nixpkgs, but they work. I'm not interested in upstreaming them into nixpkgs personally, as I have doubts on whether waterfox has any real future. As things stand, I don't know of any usably modern browsers that I like, orz.
