virt-manager doesn't have any specific firewalld checking so this is likely
coming from libvirt. I don't know anything about arch packaging, but if the
libvirt package doesn't pull in firewalld then maybe libvirt should be built

What libvirt version is this? And what's the exact error message you are seeing?
