Hi,

it hangs here :

Code:
Executing /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-53.0.3/work/firefox-53.0.3/ff/dist/bin/xpcshell -g /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-53.0.3/work/firefox-53.0.3/ff/dist/bin/ -a /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-53.0.3/work/firefox-53.0.3/ff/dist/bin/ -f /var/tmp/portage/www-client/firefox-53.0.3/work/firefox-53.0.3/toolkit/mozapps/installer/precompile_cache.js -e precompile_startupcache("resource://gre/");


Then nothing more happens, CPU stays at 0%.

defoo,

The sandbox is stopping it doing something but I don't know what. xpcshell seems to have problems on several arches.
For arm64, use
Code:
FEATURES="-sandbox -usersandbox" emerge ...

See www-client/firefox-54.0 needs FEATURES="-usersandbox -sandbox" to build on arm64

Sandboxing is a safety feature. Both firefox and thunderbird need FEATURES="-sandbox -usersandbox", they both use xpcshell, but don't use it for anything else unless you really have to.
