The new Firefox for Android updater doesn't appear to support manual update checks properly. When doing these, "?force=1" should be added to the update URL so that the server knows it's a manual check. We often set-up updates in manual-only mode when making major changes to make it safer to test them when we roll them out. This bit us during the Dawn transition (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1357808), and we had to take the risk of shipping untested updates to everyone for us to even test them.
