Firefox latest-unsigned install fails silently



Following from

Currently the latest-unsigned install of Firefox on trusty fails (and silently too, because a version of firefox is already present in the machine image). A curl to responding with 404 appears to be the cause. This is the log:

$ export FIREFOX_SOURCE_URL="$(curl -sfL | jq -r .properties.appVersion).en-US.linux-x86_64-add-on-devel.tar.bz2"
curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.
You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover

Unsigned Firefox was added here and is required for web extension testing.

Are new topics triaged by Travis support staff?

However, FWIW, it looks like the latest-unsigned option is working:
