User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0 Build ID: 20140825202822 Steps to reproduce: With version 31, checked for updates The system found version 32, and offered a button to accomplish that update However, there is no URL and no button to allow me to quickly find the issues addressed or change log This used to be a part of the choices offered, versions ago, but no longer. Additionally, following the update, there is no landing on a simple page which allows me to find that change log for the update. As it happens, you enter a morass of pages on Mozilla Expected results: On finding a potential update, the user should be presented with a simple means to find out what the update is doing -- before agreeing to an update. This used to be the default behavior, but no longer. I seem to think (but I may be wrong) that the preferred behavior disappeared at/about the time the check for update button stopped honoring -that- choice, and updated no matter what. The whole point of checking-for, but waiting, was to allow someone to look at the change logs first. Thanks...

Duplicate of bug: 1047395
Thanks Justin, for taking a look at this. The perspective of 1047395 is not the same as here. I am -not- suggesting a menu item under the help button, that points to a what's new URL Rather, I am suggesting the URL be accessible at the direct point of need, that is: where the "Update Now" [?] button is on the dialog box (within which one finds the offers to check for updates). I'm considering the distinction between a URL at the point and time need (adjacent to the update button) to be different from creating a generally available menu item under help (which is not present at the point/time of need).
