Nightly fails to apply update, continually prompts to apply an update
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0 Build ID: 20171114100042 Steps to reproduce: I opened Firefox Nightly, went to Help / About Nightly to check for an update. nightly-community . Nightly version 57.0a1 (2017-11-14) (64-bit) Actual results: An update was found, it downloaded and I was offered restarting Nightly to finish the update on a button, I clicked the button, Nightly did restart, after the restart I checked for an update again. There already was a button Restart to update Nightly, which I clicked again. It went on as an infinite loop: after the restart, I went to distrowatch.com web page and gmail.com, since when this happened to me the last time, Nightly would not notice the update correctly just when I re-checked for an update immediately after the restart without actually doing anything in an updated version. This time, however, this does not matter. Expected results: Nightly should have checked for an update after its update restart and inform me it is up to date, or, if there have been several updates since I last updated Nightly, it should have downloaded and install the next new update. However, it still offers a restart to finish an update. Nightly either does not recognize it managed to update - the update goes unnoticed, unregistered, or the update did not work.
