Lingering tmpaddon files in the OS temporary folder when an add-on has an update


(Toolkit :: Add-ons Manager, defect, P3)





(Reporter: robwu, Unassigned)



When an add-on has an update, it is downloaded to a temporary location, and the update may automatically be installed, or cancelled/not processed (if it has a permission prompt).

The tmpaddon* file is created at

And the file should ultimately be deleted after the update notification has been handled by, specifically by an onUpdateAvailable listener (called from here).

Because this file is not explicitly deleted, tmpaddon files may accumulate in the tmp dir.
