However, when it downloads and installs, it spits out an error saying along the lines of "Disable targets for download 0.5 cannot be installed because it's incompatible." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.If 0.5 is already installed, run the update for the extension. 2.Select 0.7 as the version to update to. 3. Actual Results: Firefox says 0.5 can't be installed. Expected Results: Downloaded and installed 0.7, like it says it would do. I believe that this can also be a security flaw, because if Firefox is downloading the wrong file for this, who knows what else it could potentially download for other things.
Does clearing the cache fix it?
Summary: Update incorrectly gets "disable targets for download" extension → Extension Update gets wrong version of "disable targets for download"
Wolf, is this another result of the update.mozilla.org bug with updates that use the same filename?
This seems to have been fixed...
WFM per comment 4. This doesn't rate the confidential flag unless it demonstrates a way to purposefully hack the system to force the wrong downloads on people. If it's something only someone who could change the extension can do, then they could just do evil things silently in the extension code itself.
