Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0
Build ID: 20150806001005

Steps to reproduce:

I have always had setting "Check for updates, but let me choose whether to install them" selected.
 
Normal browsing session.


Actual results:

Pop-up informing me that "stability update" could not be installed due to permission (I think that was the wording) problems.

Setting "Check for updates, but let me choose whether to install them" appeared still active at that time - no changes made by me.


Expected results:

It should have honored my setting by showing information that "stability update" is available without actually trying to install.

The "Check for updates" button should result in "New 39.0.3 version available" rather then inaccurate "New version is available at http://..." as it was the case now.

1. Auto upgrade problem: I didn't notice the unauthorized attempt to upgrade since then. 

2. Not showing available version: Yes "Help" / "About Firefox" dialog, it says 
---
43.0.4
Updates available at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

I have just noticed that there are "updates available" - I haven't been informed by any popup/message that they are available. My setting is still "Settings" / "Advanced" / "Update": "Check for updates but let me choose wheter to install them". I am not sure if it is a bug or if I am not to be informed automatically.

I didn't mention but I am running apparmor/debian if it may have an impact.
