Just updated and I get a crash on startup. But I might not be the same reason. Can someone check?
crash reported => Details => (in my case) «MozCrashReason: MOZ_CRASH(SQLite Version Error)»

Does not crash when started with the `--no-remote` option

followup: My crash was unrelated, it was because at some point I had to use dqlite and sqlite-replication and an update made them incompatible. I switched back to the standard sqlite and it worked.

This crash doesn't occur when Firefox is compiled with Wayland support. https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/60790?dev=10516
