Version values returned by runtime.getBrowserInfo(): > Nightly: 57.0a1 > Developer Edition: 56.0 > Beta: 56.0 > Release: 55.0 Beta version values lack the 'b' component (56.0b1) making them indistinguishable from release versions.
This is how version numbers are handled, but bug 1386076 should meet your needs.

I want to notify the user when the beta build number changes in a format that is familiar to the user. It looks like this would require AppConstants.MOZ_APP_VERSION_DISPLAY to be exposed.
Status: RESOLVED → UNCONFIRMED
Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
Summary: runtime.getBrowserInfo() does not identify beta versions → runtime.getBrowserInfo() expose beta version build number
I created bug 1386076 and yeah, the beta version number is a thing I need too, by the same reasons given in that bug.
I can add it as part of the patch for bug 1386076, or with other patch here. Is it then Ok to change to AppConstants.MOZ_APP_VERSION_DISPLAY as the value returned for the version number by runtime.getBrowserInfo, instead of the current implementation? I think that numbers for beta builds will be the only affected by this.
