## Firefox version tested on: Firefox 43.0.4 Test webextension used: https://addons-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/addon/shutterstock-tab/ Steps to reproduce: 1. Install a web extension version from addons-dev 2. Ensure in about:config that extensions.update.url is set to https://versioncheck-dev.allizom.org/update/VersionCheck.php?reqVersion=%REQ_VERSION%&id=%ITEM_ID%&version=%ITEM_VERSION%&maxAppVersion=%ITEM_MAXAPPVERSION%&status=%ITEM_STATUS%&appID=%APP_ID%&appVersion=%APP_VERSION%&appOS=%APP_OS%&appABI=%APP_ABI%&locale=%APP_LOCALE%¤tAppVersion=%CURRENT_APP_VERSION%&updateType=%UPDATE_TYPE%&compatMode=%COMPATIBILITY_MODE% 3. Make sure the web extension has an update which is approved and public 4. Tools -> Add-ons; check for updates Expected behavior: Update for webextension shows up. Actual behavior: Updates for regular add-ons show up but updates for webextensions are not getting listed in the add-ons manager, no update occurs. about:support info https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8856416 Console log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8856415 is from the console. It clearly says addons.update-checker DEBUG Found an update entry for email@example.com version 1.2.3 Copied over from https://github.com/mozilla/olympia/issues/1318 Currently blocking webextensions 1.0
Noted that this addon: https://addons-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1201addon1 updates just fine.
The add-on here has a maxVersion of 42.* and WebExtensions aren't compatible by default so that is respected and Firefox 43 doesn't install the update. Unless you want to change that this is back to AMO I think.
