    This build cannot update itself, it downloads approx. 300KB file properly, the starts to updating process and after few seconds stops w/o relaunching Firefox. OTOH it doesn’t screw anything, probably some rollback and FF is able to launch from 24/10 branch version. On subsequent check for updates – updates are still available.

    Also, that network.IDN.blacklist_chars variable in the “about:config” URL on my locale(British/UK) using Unicode UTF-8 is ” ¼½ǃ̷̸׃״۔܂ᅟᅠ           ​․‧

    For the last couple of days my Firefox hasn’t even been able to find updates. I was running a build from the 21st and when I tried to update on the 23rd Firefox said there aren’t any updates available. Same thing today, I had to download the build from the 25th manually. Is this a side effect of release preparations? (Note: I’m running the Update Channel Selector extension and it is set to the nightlies channel)

  3. Manoj Mehta Says:

    DennisJ, how do you manually request Firefox to find updates? The update now button has been removed from the Preferences UI and I no longer know how to force Firefox to look for updates.

    DennisJ: its a bug that was just fixed yesterday. from now on it “should” kinda work but #313764 [Firefox:Software Update]-Firefox does not restart after update [Win] is getting in the way right now on both branch and trunk.

  5. pikaunforgiven Says:

    Manoj: go to help -> check for updates in order to find updates to firefox.
